The Shire expanded its annual Community Sponsorship Program at the beginning of 2018 to include the new Economic, Events and Tourism Development funding stream, with 11 Broome organisations sharing more than $200,000 in funding in the inaugural round. Applications for the new funding round opened on 1 November and close at 4pm on 11 January 2019. Applicants can request up to $70,000 in cash support, and $30,000 of in-kind support, up to 50 per cent of the total project cost. For full details head to the Shire website.
