Funding Opportunities

Kimberley Regional Grants Scheme and Kimberley Community Chest Fund

The Kimberley Development Commission has recently had two grant funding rounds for community, public and not-for-profit organisations.

Both programs are aimed at helping successful applicants to improve or develop infrastructure and/or services in the Kimberley Region.

These programs are funded through Royalties for Regions and applicants were 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 was 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.

The Kimberley Community Chest Fund was for grants of up to $20,000.   Applications for the 2014-15 Community Chest Fund have now closed.

The first tranche of successful applicants was announced in April 2015. For more information regarding successful applicants and projects please see KCCF Successful Applicants.
