Need funding for a community project in Cockburn?

More than $1m in community grants 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 $1.3m in funds will be split into 30 different funding pools and subsidy programs.

The last round provided $202,580 to 58 recipients. They ranged from a donation of $450 for a youth arts scholarship to a $20,000 sponsorship to Melville-Cockburn Chamber of Commerce to help local businesses grow and develop through networking, workshop and event opportunities.

The Community Funding program allocates funding 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.
Applications for the CCFs first round for 2018-19 close at 4pm Friday, 28 September.

The funding categories are:
  • Community Grants
  • Donations
  • Sponsorship (Group, Individual and Small Events)
  • Cultural Grants
  • Youth Art Scholarships

City of Cockburn Mayor Logan Howlett said the City distributed more than $1m annually through the CCF. 

“This financial help is provided to local people, community groups and organisations for a wide range of activities under the categories of youth arts, cultural, community, environmental education and sustainability grants, sponsorships and donations,” Mayor Howlett said.
