Forty Four community groups across the Central Wheatbelt electorate are set to benefit from grants awarded under Mia’s Local Hero Grants.
Local Member for Central Wheatbelt Mia Davies MLA recently launched the ‘Local Hero Grants’ to help support local community groups based across her electorate.
Ms Davies said that in her role as the local State Member she was always pleased to support groups and the new program would offer small but meaningful grants to the community.
“I am always keen to support community groups throughout the Central Wheatbelt, especially those who support and enrich our local communities,” Ms Davies said.
“My new Mia’s Local Hero Grants program provided $250 grants and we received some fantastic applications.”
“The impacts of COVID-19 have been felt throughout the electorate and this was a way for me to acknowledge and support the many groups that do great work in my electorate.”
Ms Davies said the grants provided an opportunity to show her support, thanks and appreciation for the hardworking volunteer and not-for-profit organisations that make such a difference in our community.
“There will be another round announced later in the year, so if you missed this round I’d encourage you to apply when we re-open another down the track.”
“The process isn’t onerous, but it is competitive so make sure you explain clearly how the money will be used and why it will benefit the community or people you support,” she said.
Funding can be used to support or sponsor a local event, contribute toward the purchase of new equipment or materials, or to assist a group to better support their members or community.
