The Annual Grant Program 

Description of image

The City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder is proud to offer The Annual Grant Program, aimed to those wanting to contribute to the quality of life in our city through providing events, projects, activities, and services to strengthen and enhance the social well-being, development, and sustainability of the Kalgoorlie-Boulder community.

The program offers funding support for unique initiatives that will revitalise our city and let it shine, which in turn brings a wide range of environmental, social and economic returns to the city.
