Apply for a Community Grant now!

Applications are now OPEN for community and sporting groups to apply for funding assistance of up to $5,000 through Round 1 2019/20 of the Shire of Dardanup’s bi-annual Community Grants Program.

Council has previously funded projects that have promoted the arts, supported sporting events, improved the lives of seniors and people with disabilities, helped community gardens come alive and seen numerous other projects supported.

Beneficiaries in past funding rounds included:

  • Vocal Fusion Choir for a PA System
  • Dardanup Aeromodellers Society Inc for a generator
  • Riding for the Disabled Association for a cabinet to house emergency supplies and first aid kits
  • Wellington Mills Community Association for paving of a memorial shelter

Shire of Dardanup CEO André Schönfeldt said the purpose of the grants was to provide positive financial support to not for profit community groups and organisations, and individuals to help assist with the development of their chosen interest.

The Shire of Dardanup Council is very appreciative of the work undertaken by these grass roots projects and this has been demonstrated once again with funding support in Council’s 2018/19 Budget.

Groups and individuals interested in submitting an application are encouraged to make contact with Culture & Community Services Officer Melanie Serra on 9724 0000 or email

This will ensure assistance can be offered to help maximise potential for funding support.
Applications close Monday, August 19, 2019.
