The objective of this grant program is to support the longer term recovery of Western Australia and to create opportunities for the whole community to come together as a means of enhancing community connection, strengthening social capital and encouraging community to repair, rebuild and recover from the pandemic.
Expressions of interest will be sought related to the streams of community connection, arts and culture, Aboriginal communities and environment.
Within these streams proposals which target young people (15-24), people with disability and aboriginal people will be prioritised.
• Community Connection
• Arts and Culture
• Aboriginal Communities

1. Community is connected through local initiatives that strengthen wellbeing, promote participation and/or volunteering, and encourage re-connection after a period of distancing and isolation.
2. Marginalised, minority and disadvantaged groups at risk of experiencing prolonged impacts of social isolation and discrimination are actively included in community.
3. Aboriginal people retain and strengthen connection to country, identity and culture.
