Community Funding Submissions

Has your community group got a great idea to benefit the community, but you just need a little funding to get it off the ground?

The 2017/18 Shire of Merredin community funding grants are open!

To apply, your group needs to be based in the Shire of Merredin and you need to be either an incorporated body or to be auspiced by an incorporated organisation. You can apply for funding for just about anything - for example, for infrastructure, events, equipment or activities. You just need to be able to show us how the community (or a significant sector of the community) will benefit from the funding. 

Examples of previous projects that funding was allocated for include upgrades to the MADCAPS facilities, support for Western Reptile Rescue's Stay Snake Smart schools education programme, support for community events run by the Merredin CRC and upgrades and to the Merredin Museum and Historical Society.

An application form can be obtained from the Shire of Merredin administration building, or by clicking here. Application forms must be received by 4:00pm on 31 March 2017.

For further information please contact Rebecca McCall, Deputy Chief Executive Officer on 9041 1611 or email



    With the 30th June rapidly approaching, the Shire felt it was timely to remind the community how our rates work in Merredin.
