The Shire of Northam Community Grants are open from mid February to mid April.

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.
