Nearly $275K community funding is up for grabs as the first round of the 2019-20 Cockburn Community Fund (CCF) program has officially opened.
Each year, the CCF offers up to $1.4 Million in financial support to local, community groups, organisations and individuals that undertake activities or provide services that benefit the community. The funds are split into 30 different funding pools and subsidy programs.
Funding for major categories is allocated twice a year, with applications open all year for individual and small events sponsorships.
Last financial year, over 100 community groups, organisations and individuals around the City of Cockburn were awarded Grants, Sponsorships and Donations.
They ranged from a $450 Youth Arts Scholarship for local drama student Nina Dakin to a donation of $18,000 to Second Harvest, who provide emergency food relief, clothing and household items to Cockburn families.
Applications for the CCFs first round for 2019-20 close at 4pm Friday, 27 September.
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.
“The Cockburn Community Fund offers fantastic support to our local people, groups and organisations.”
“Annually, the City distributes over one million dollars through this initiative to a wide range causes – all of whom undertake activities and projects that benefit our community,” said Mayor Howlett.
