Round 10 of the Recfishwest Community Grants is still open for fishers!
We want your applications for projects to improve fishing for your community. Previous successful projects receiving Community Grants funding have included the Kalbarri Kids Whiting Comp, Steep Point Clean Up Day (pictured above), the West Kimberley Women’s Fishing Clinics and videos to help raise the profile of Fishability.
You could use the money to hold a fishing clinic, hold a fishing competition, offer a training day for your club members, purchase new information or safety signage, or improve access to fishing locations. There are so many opportunities to improve fishing for your community. Think outside the box and bring new projects to the table.
The grants are available to a maximum of $8,000 for each applicant, although preference will be given to applications under $5,000. Applications which demonstrate the support of local recreational fishers or fishing club will rank highly. This scheme is funded using recreational fishing licence fees through the Recreational Fishing Initiatives Fund. Be a part of making fishing better in WA, help us help you, help fishers!
Applications open: Friday, 27 September
Applications close: Midnight Friday, 22 November
