The Shire of Broome’s Community Development Fund (CDF) is now open to submissions for events and projects scheduled to occur from July 2024 to June 2025.

Funded by the Shire and Energy Developments Limited (EDL) - West Kimberley Community Fund, the CDF invests in local events, projects and initiatives within the Shire that deliver long-term social or economic benefits to the local community.

Funding is available for organisations that meet CDF objectives and have secured 50 per cent of the project costs from other sources.

Eligibility criteria are divided into three funding streams, depending on the scope of the project.

  • Stream 1 - Community projects seeking a funding contribution of $500 to $10,000
  • Stream 2 - Events seeking a funding contribution of $10,000 to $40,000
  • Stream 3 - PEARL events requiring a funding contribution of more than $40,000.

In 2023, the Shire awarded more than $155,000 across 14 Stream 1 and 2 recipients, with the money used to support the development of animal welfare, social, cultural, economic, recreational, environmental, and reconciliation projects and other initiatives.

Community Development fund applications are open annually from January 10 to March 20. Applications received outside of this timeframe will not be accepted.
