The Youth Affairs Council of Western Australia (YACWA) introduces the Youth Sector Grants Scheme, supported by Lotterywest, to build the capacity and resilience of organisations, collectives and community groups working with young people to rebuild and recover following the impacts of COVID-19.
Emerging from a sector-wide response to the issues facing young people in the context of the pandemic, the Grants Scheme will enable YACWA to provide financial support for amounts between $2,000 – $10,000 to reinvigorate interrupted programs, deepen youth engagement and improve mental health and wellbeing outcomes for young people (aged 10 – 25 years) in Western Australia.
- Grant program opens: 30 August 2021.
- Three regional information sessions will be hosted in the following locations on the corresponding dates. The sessions will provide an overview of the grant program and use a couple of industry-relevant examples to detail how to complete sections of the application form. Resources from the information sessions will be made available online following the last session:
- Applications close 11 October 2021, at 5pm.
- Applicants will be notified of the grant outcome by 5 November 2021.
