About the Go for 2 & 5 Children’s Week Community Grants Program

The Go for 2 & 5 Children’s Week Community Grants Program is a Meerilinga Children and Community Foundation (Meerilinga) initiative. Supported by Healthway, Lotterywest, and the Department of Communities, Meerilinga administers small grants to encourage regional and remote not-for-profits and local governments to host their own Children’s Week events.

Grants of up to $1,000 (excl GST) are available for eligible regional and remote organisations.

All applications are to be submitted via the Children’s Week WA website.

While we aim to support as many organisations as possible, please note that this is a competitive grants process and there is no guarantee that every organisation that meets the eligibility criteria will be funded.
