The WAFC Community Facilities Fund aims to supplement efforts at a strategic level to ensure football has access to quality facilities to support the future growth of the game in Western Australia.
WAFC Executive Manager Stadia and Facilities Paul Lekias said the intention of the Community Facilities Fund was to contribute seed funding that would attract additional investment for football facilities.
“The fund is available to all WAFL clubs, District and Regional Football Development Councils, and incorporated junior and senior community football clubs. We encourage applications for projects that will help to meet the needs of football participants, while also providing benefits to the wider community,” he said.
Funding applications and approvals are split across two rounds in January and June.
