Town of Port Hedland Community Grants Program

The revised Town of Port Hedland Grants Policy delivers more funding categories for community groups and organisations to apply for. Funding categories are now more targeted based on the interests of community members, further recognising the important role arts and culture plays in daily life. 

What are the objectives of the new Grants Program?

  • Better reflect the diversity in the types of community groups across Hedland
  • Reach new organisations which may not have applied for funding in previous years
  • Foster the establishment of new not for profit organisations
  • Activate spaces across Hedland to foster a shared sense of community
  • Increase the amount of money distributed to organisations compared to previous years
