Annual Grant Program

Overview

The City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder’s Annual Grant Program (AGP) provides one-off grants and three-year service agreements for Not For Profit (incorporated or auspiced) community groups and organisations, and individuals supported by an auspice organisation, with a focus on community development initiatives, capital works projects and events or activities. It is an opportunity for applicants to apply for larger scale funding for specific initiatives that align with the City’s Strategic Community Plan 2020-30.

The AGP is aimed at strengthening and enhancing the social wellbeing, development and sustainability of the Kalgoorlie-Boulder community, and aimed at those wanting to make a difference and contribute to the City’s quality of life through the provision of events, projects, activities and services.

The City encourages all Not For Profit organisations and individuals to check their eligibility for the AGP and consider applying.
