Grants & Funding 

Shire of Wongan-Ballidu Annual Community Development Fund (CDF)

The Shire of Wongan-Ballidu has a proud history of working in partnership with the community. One of the ways Council supports and empowers community groups is through the annual Community Development Grants program, which delivers funding for projects that:

  • Reflect our community’s priorities and vision, as set out in Council's Strategic Community Plan
  • Strengthen communities and provide opportunities for enhanced participation in public life and community groups
  • Provide benefits to the local community and
  • Contribute to the social, cultural, environmental and economic development of our community

CDF grants are provided to support participation and facilitate projects, events and improve facilities in alignment with the recreational, social and cultural needs of our community. Council invests significantly in this annual program, and is proud to have supported projects that deliver to our community through the CDF Program. 

Each financial year, Council allocates funds to support community projects undertaken by incorporated community, cultural or sporting groups within the Shire.

The 2022-2023 Community Development Fund is now open. Applications close 4.30pm Friday 29 April 2022. Late applications will not be accepted.
