Funding Opportunities

Kimberley Regional Grants Scheme and Kimberley Community Chest Fund

The Kimberley Development Commission currently has two active funding rounds open for community, public and not-for-profit organisations.

Both programs aim to help successful applicants to improve or develop infrastructure and/or services in the Kimberley Region.

These programs are funded through Royalties for Regions and applicants are encouraged to consider how their projects and proposals demonstrate alignment with the Royalties for Regions program objectives and the Kimberley Development Commission’s strategic objectives. Details of these objectives can be found in the guidelines for the relevant grant or by following clicking on the following link – Kimberley Development Commission – Strategic Plan 2013-2018

The Kimberley Regional Grant Scheme is for grants of between $20,001 and $300,000. The applications for the 2014-15 Kimberley Regional Grants Scheme have now closed.

Successful applicants should be aware that grants may not be available until 1 June 2015 but that their projects should be ready to proceed as soon as possible after that time.
