Grants ranging from $25,000 to $200,000 are available to provide one-off financial co-contributions towards new initiatives that are identified and led by local governments to respond to and prevent homelessness around Western Australia.

The key objectives of the Fund are to:

  • Enable the development of place-based initiatives that respond to and prevent homelessness around Western Australia;
  • Create opportunities for local government, the community sector, business and philanthropic organisations to collaborate and co-fund initiatives that will address homelessness and service gaps in their local community; and
  • Encourage the development and delivery of locally designed, innovative initiatives that support implementation of All Paths Lead to a Home: Western Australia's 10-Year Strategy on Homelessness 2020-2030.

The following bodies are eligible to apply for funding:

  • local government authorities
  • incorporated not-for-profit community organisations, provided that they:
    • are located within, or have an established local presence within, the local government area in which the project will be delivered,
    • can demonstrate an active partnership (including a financial or in-kind contribution towards the matched funding requirement) with the local government authority where the project will be located, and
    • include a formal letter of support from the local government authority where the project will be located. 
  • unincorporated organisations or community groups, provided that they apply through the auspice of an incorporated body or a local government authority and they:
    • are located within, or have an established local presence within, the local government area in which the project will be delivered,
    • can demonstrate an active partnership (including a financial or in-kind contribution towards the matched funding requirement) with the local government authority where the project will be located, and
