Nearly $275K in community funding is up for grabs as part of the 2018-19 Cockburn Community Fund (CCF) program.
Each year, the CCF offers financial support to local individuals, community groups and organisations that undertake activities or provide services that benefit the community. The funds are split into 30 different funding pools and subsidy programs.
Funding is allocated twice a year, while there are four rounds annually for junior sports travel grants and applications are open all year for individual and small events sponsorships.
The first round of the 2018-19 program provided nearly $200,000 to 33 community groups, organisations and individuals around the City of Cockburn.
They ranged from a $3,000 Community Grant for Cooby Cares, a $500 Youth Arts Scholarship for talented Cello player Elijah Crouch, a $12,500 Sponsorship for the upcoming Coogee Jetty to Jetty Swim, and a $6,000 Donation to the Cockburn Toy Library to maintain their services for the Cockburn community.
Applications for the CCFs second round for 2018-19 close at 4pm Friday, 29 March.
The funding categories are:
- Community Grants
- Sponsorship (Group, Individual and Small Events)
- Cultural Grants
- Youth Art Scholarships
City of Cockburn Mayor Logan Howlett said the City was proud to support the community through the CCF.
“Annually, the City distributes over one million dollars through the Cockburn Community Fund. The funds are provided to a wide range of people, groups and organisations – all of whom undertake activities and projects that benefit our community,” said Mayor Howlett.
