Grant Funding Available

There are a number of funding opportunities for community groups and clubs in the Shire of Dowerin.

Dowerin Events Management Funding

The DEM Fund provides financial assistance to Dowerin and surrounding community groups to conduct events and projects that are of benefit to their local community.

The purpose of the funding is to not replace funds that may be generated by volunteering at the Dowerin GWN7 Machinery Field Days, but rather provide an additional revenue stream for those clubs and organisations that cannot raise enough funds despite their best volunteering efforts.

Applications are invited during March and October each year for requests of up to $1000 for small projects or $5000 for large projects.

Each round will provide a total investment of $15000 into the local community.

The new funding round application form will be available from October 1st 2019.
