Grants of up to $25,000 are available to eligible organisations through the WA Hiking Participation Grants program, which aims to provide new opportunities that grow participation in hiking or develop leaders including guides, instructors and volunteers.
A total of $150,000 is available this year, with a further $150,000 allocated to WA Hiking Participation Grants in 2022-23.
Applicants are encouraged to think of innovative and creative ways of growing Western Australia's community of bushwalkers, trail runners and outdoor enthusiasts.
More than $153,000 was shared amongst 14 local governments and community organisations in the 2020-21 grants program.
The program was a response to the recommendations of the State Government's WA Hiking Strategy 2020-2030, launched last June.
The strategy is the first of its kind in Australia, to ensure Western Australians continue to enjoy the great outdoors in a safe and sustainable way.
