The Eastern Metropolitan Regional Council (EMRC) has opened its popular Community Grants Program aimed at providing wider support for community groups in the Red Hill area.

The Program has a 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 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 recently been reviewed 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.’ 

Successful community groups in last year’s Program were:

  • X Speed Australia Cycle Club
  • Gidgegannup Primary School P&C Association
  • Gidgegannup Scout Group
  • Silvertree Steiner School
  • Gidgegannup JFC
  • Stoneville-Parkville Progress Association
