Community groups can achieve amazing things, especially with a little support. Continue reading “Apply for Round 12 of Recfishwest’s Community Grants program”
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
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
- 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.
