Funding awarded for regional community partnerships

The WA Government, through Horizon Power’s Community Partnerships Program, has awarded funding to 73 community programs and initiatives throughout regional Western Australia.

The program is an investment in vibrant communities and thriving regions, focused on delivering positive outcomes through the arts, sport, health and education.

An investment of $1.1 million was allocated in July 2020 and $699,500 was awarded in this first round of funding, with up to $50,000 available to each community program.

Successful applicants include Glass Jar Australia and the Clontarf Foundation where funding will support the empowerment of regional Aboriginal peoples through employment pathways and positive education outcomes.

In the Kimberley, Pilbara and Mid-West, Fair Game Australia will receive funding to support community health programs, while in the Gascoyne and Goldfields, funding allocated to the Stephen Michael Foundation will support a sustainable sports program to engage local young people.

Round 2 applications will open in February 2021. For more information, visit
