Community Funding Program

The City of Gosnells recently completed a review of its Community Sponsorship Program.  Following this review, a number of changes were made to the program in response to the needs of our community, including renaming it the Community Funding Program.  

The Community Funding Program reflects Council’s commitment to support community organisations to deliver quality programs and services to the local community, and assist individuals to achieve in their chosen field of endeavour.

There are two categories in the Community Funding Program which are available for community organisations and individuals to apply for.  It is highly recommended that applicants read the 'Guidelines for Applicants' document which provides information about the requirements of the program.

Category 1 – Community Grants

This category provides funding for community organisations and individuals to support the delivery of programs, events, training, minor capital projects and the purchase of equipment.

Category 1 has two levels of funding available to the community.

Level 1 – To support small-scale, local initiatives, this category will support up to 100% of your Total Project Cost, with a maximum grant of $2,000 available.  To complete an application, please click here.

Level 2 – To support community projects run by eligible not-for-profit organisations, this category will support up to 50% of your Total Project Cost, with a maximum grant of $8,000 available.  To complete an application, please click here.

Category 2 – Competition Sponsorships

This category provides funding assistance to support individuals who are representing either Western Australia or Australia in their chosen field of endeavour. Applicants must be either residents or ratepayers of the City of Gosnells.
