Round 9 Community Grants Now Open

Round 9 Community Grants are Now Closed

Every year Recfishwest run a community grant program designed to provide funding for small scale projects which benefit recreational fishing in Western Australia.

Incorporated fishing clubs and community groups are encouraged to submit an application for funding.

Applications for Round 9 of the Recfishwest Community grant program open on 15th August and close on 12th October.

Applications for funding must cover at least one of the following priority areas:

  • Extension Materials
  • Education/Engagement Initiatives
  • Habitat Protection/Enhancement
  • Recreational Fishing Safety
  • Community Capacity Building
  • Access
  • Promotion of recreational fishing in Western Australia

More than one application may be submitted from your group provided each project is quite distinct from the others, and you have the capacity to deliver them.

All applicants are encouraged to discuss their projects with Recfishwest prior to submission.

The Recfishwest Board will be responsible for approval of funding applications.
