Community groups and organisations within the Shire of Waroona are being encouraged to apply for grants of between $10,000 - $50,000 through the Alcoa Waroona Sustainability Fund.


The Fund, which has not invited applications since 2021, is a partnership between Alcoa of Australia and the Shire of Waroona. It aims to assist local groups to deliver projects that make a positive contribution towards economic, social, recreational, and environmental sustainability.


To be eligible, project applications should align with at least one of the following key priority areas:


  • Capital Improvements
  • Public Space Enhancement
  • Durable Equipment
  • Economic Development
  • Environmental Sustainability
  • Education and Training
  • Community Welfare


Shire President Mike Walmsley said the Alcoa Waroona Sustainability Advisory Committee was hoping to receive applications for well-considered and developed projects of high community value.


“This grant funding has the ability to secure future projects for groups and create sustainable outcomes for the community. In the past, it has been very successful in being the basis to help attract other sources of funding culminating in organisations across the Shire such as the Waroona Community Men’s Shed, Preston Beach Golf Club and the Lake Clifton-Herron Residents' Association to develop tremendous long term benefits for the community,” Cr Walmsley said.   


Applications for this round of the Fund are open until 4.30pm on Wednesday, 26 April 2023.


Prior to completing their funding application, interested applicants are asked to make an appointment to discuss their project. The Shire’s Community Development team are available to provide advice and assistance with completing applications.


To progress your application, please visit or contact the Shire on 9733 7800.
