Many Friends Groups and other small community groups seek additional funding through community grants. The list below is not a comprehensive grant guide as grant opportunities are dynamic and often reflect changes in government and subsequent policy.
Grants will require endorsement from the City of Kalamunda for any projects on City managed land. The City may also be able to manage grant funds for Friends Groups, if the group is not incorporated. The City could potential be a project
partner and provide some in kind support to your project or assist you in preparing a successful application.
Some funding opportunities are listed include:
