The Eastern Metropolitan Regional Council (EMRC) is doubling the previous limit of $1,500 per application through its 2020/2021 Community Grants Program, aimed at providing wider support for community groups in the Red Hill area.

The Program opens on Wednesday, 1 July 2020 with a total pool of $15,000 available to support programs, activities, events or facilities assisting the development or maintenance of the sustainability, social, cultural and/or recreational needs of members of the Gidgegannup, Hovea, Parkerville and/or Stoneville communities.  Applicants can now apply for funding for community-based projects up to a value of $3,000, up from $1,500 in previous years.

The application process has also been simplified to encourage more community groups to apply for project funding.

EMRC Chairman Jai Wilson said: ‘The EMRC is proud of its long-standing support for communities in the vicinity of our Red Hill Waste Management Facility. In the past we have supported a wide variety of initiatives and we look forward to widening this support with this year’s Program.’ 

The 2020/2021 Community Grants Program Guidelines and Application Form are available for download at www.emrc.org.au/emrc-community-grants-program.html.  For further advice on the application process, please contact the EMRC on (08) 9424 2209 during business hours.
