The latest round of ‘Mia’s Local Hero Grants’ has been opened to eligible groups and individuals living in the electorate of Central Wheatbelt.
It is the eighth round of the small grant funding program provided by Hon Mia Davies MLA.
“These small grants are designed to support groups and people in the electorate who work hard to support and inspire their community,” Ms Davies said.
“This round of the program will provide amounts of up to $200 for local groups who support and enrich our communities.”
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.
“I encourage everyone that is eligible to make an application as it’s hotly contested and there are many deserving projects, people and event in the electorate,” Ms Davies said.
“The funds could be used to support or sponsor a local event, contribute toward the purchase of new equipment or materials, or to assist your group to better support your members or community.
“I’m looking forward to receiving the applications, and if anyone has concerns about their eligibility, they should contact my office.”
Successful applicants from the previous round include bringing a qualified swim instructor to Mukinbudin for the Swimming Club, purchasing photography light display boxes for the Narembeen Historical Society and personal protective equipment for the Pingelly Youth Cadets.
“The funding also contributed to new trestles for the Nungarin Wheatbelt Markets as the Committee celebrated their 25th anniversary this year, new roller-skates for the Wylie Roller-skating team and a ‘come and try day’ for York & District Archery Club.
Round 8 opens Friday 13th October and closes at 4.00pm on Friday 10th Nov 2023.
