Community Grants

The Community Grants Scheme aims to strengthen and enhance the social wellbeing, development and sustainability of the Shire of Northam community. Each financial year Council invites not-for-profit community organisations and sporting groups operating in the Shire of Northam to submit applications for financial support and/or sponsorship for projects, events and activities.  

Community grants usually open in February and close in April each year.

The Shire of Northam will favourably view initiatives that clearly demonstrate their benefit to the community, have additional funding partners and have a degree of sustainability.

As well as applying for small non-recurring Community Grants for one-off initiatives, groups can apply for sponsorships, scholarships, donations, prizes or other support and assistance through this program.
