Member for Central Wheatbelt Mia Davies MLA has launched a new ‘Local Hero’ small grants program to help support local community groups across the Central Wheatbelt 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.
“My new Mia’s Local Hero Grants program will provide $250 grants for local groups who support and enrich our community in the electorate of Central Wheatbelt,” Ms Davies said.
“The first round opens on 1st May 2020 and I’d encourage eligible groups to make an application.
“It could be 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.”
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.
“The application process isn’t onerous, but it will be 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.
“There will be more than one round a year, so if you’re unsuccessful in this round I’d encourage you to apply again when we re-open them down the track.
“I’m looking forward to receiving the applications, and if anyone has concerns about their eligibility they should contact my office.”
Round 1 opens 1st May 2020 and closes at 4.00pm on Monday 1St June 2020.
