Two weeks left for schools in Hasluck to apply for project funding

Schools in Hasluck have only two weeks left to apply for up to $20,000 in funding for projects to benefit their students’ learning experience.

Member for Hasluck, Ken Wyatt MP encouraged local schools to apply for grants between $1,000 and $20,000 to contribute to school projects through the Coalition Government’s $30.2 million Local Schools Community Fund.

 

“There are less than two weeks to go for local schools to apply for funding through the Local Schools Community Fund,” Mr Wyatt said.

“Projects can be anything that benefits the school community, whether it be computer facilities, mental health and counselling services, playground equipment, library resources or sports facilities.

“Hasluck has been allocated $200,000 in grant funding for projects and I urge all schools across Hasluck to think about the best way this funding can help their students and the local school community and to submit an application.

“Applications for the fund close on 30 September 2019 and I encourage every school to apply.”

The Local Schools Community Fund is open to eligible state, Catholic and Independent schools, and proposed projects will be independently evaluated by a committee appointed by the Member for Hasluck. Schools may submit one application for up to $20,000 funding for each of their campuses.

Applications close at 5:00pm AEST on 30 September 2019 and projects must be completed by the end of 2020.

Schools can apply for the Coalition Government program through SchoolsHUB – https://schools.education.gov.au/.
