Peaks Sector Support Grants project is a pilot project supported by WACOSS, funded by Lotterywest. It is an opportunity for WA community services peak bodies to apply to for grants up to $20,000 to facilitate training, or consultation and co-design processes with their members on a sector issue of strategic importance, where the need to do this is immediate.
The focus of this project is emerging issues that require a quick response, which often is very difficult for small peak bodies to accommodate.
Up to $100,000 per year is available over a two-year pilot period.
The Lotterywest Capacity-Building Grants are up to $20,000 in value, and are provided for peak bodies in the community service sector to facilitate training, or consultation and co-design processes with their members on an issue of strategic importance, and where the need to do this is immediate.
The focus of this project has traditionally been emerging issues that require a quick turnaround; and the focus now needs to include a nexus with response to or recovery from COVID-19.
A total of $160,000 was available in 2020.
