The Community Place Based Grants program provides funding for the development and delivery of co-designed, place based structured holiday and out-of-school activity programs in the Kimberley, Goldfields, Pilbara and Gascoyne regions.
The program includes a process to work with local government, Aboriginal leaders and service organisations, to embed sport and recreation in community-led activities and events that target vulnerable and at-risk youth and their families.
The aim is to fund programs for multiple years to ensure a consistent quality approach to programs to get traction, build capacity and have a collective impact.
