Shire president Michelle Campbell said the council hoped to fund initiatives that would give Harvey an edge this year.

“We love supporting bold projects that keep local organisations and venues ahead of the curve across amenity, sustainability and recreation,” Cr Campbell said.

“This year, we are focused on powering community ideas that enhance public spaces, modernise or expand facilities, preserve our historical sites and support the creative and athletic talent we have in the Harvey Region.”

Funds will be available for several categories of the project, which include community support, community events, athlete travel subsidies, infrastructure, placemaking and arts, culture and heritage.

The Alcoa Harvey sustainability fund is also included in these grants.

Applications will close on April 19. To apply, visit harvey.wa.gov.au/community/community-grants-and-funding.
