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.
