Funding for local governments and community service organisations to implement projects that engage young people to help achieve positive outcomes for young people in the community.
The WA Youth Engagement Grants Program has been running for several years, but was in 2020-21 rebranded as the COVID-19 Youth Recovery Grants Program.
The program has now returned to its original objective of funding initiatives and projects that promote and empower young people.
Examples of initiatives and activities that would qualify for funding include:
Grants of up to $5,000 are available for short-term, one-off activities or initiatives of up to six months’ duration, and up to $10,000 for longer term, community-wide, strategic initiatives.
