EMRC Community Grants Program

Since 1997, the Eastern Metropolitan Regional Council (EMRC) has been proudly supporting the communities neighbouring the Red Hill Waste Management Facility through grants of up to $3,000 for projects that provide direct benefits to the local community and/or environment.

The program has a pool of $15,000 available to support not-for-profit organisations and community groups to complete projects that enhance the sustainability, social, cultural and recreational outcomes for the Gidgegannup, Hovea, Parkerville and Stoneville communities.

The 2022 EMRC Community Grants Program is open for applications from Friday, 1 July 2022 to Wednesday, 31 August 2022
