Youth Grants

Calling all community groups!

Youth Minister Dave Kelly recently announced that the Youth Week Grants program is now open!

The annual state-wide celebration focuses on the positive contribution of young people to our communities and runs from 9-16 April 2021.

Grants of up to $1,500 are available for eligible organisations to deliver a range of projects such as festivals and events, workshops, seminars, awards ceremonies and more! Plus, for groups looking to collaborate and host larger community wide events with a range of partners – up to $3,000 is available.

"By supporting Youth Week events and activities the State Government is providing young people in local communities across Western Australia an opportunity to be key contributors to the development and delivery of Youth Week WA projects” Youth Minister Dave Kelly said. “We're also providing young people in WA with a platform for trying new experiences, building community links and having fun."

Eligible organisations must be an incorporated not-for-profit community organisation, a local government authority, or an unincorporated organisation or community group, applying through the auspice of an incorporated body or a local government authority.

Applications close at 4pm on Thursday, November 12, 2020.
