The aim of the ERA Community Partnership Fund (the Fund) is to contribute to the development of a healthy and positive community in the Alligator Rivers region.

Preference is given to applications seeking support for projects which build meaningful partnerships with local business and communities, demonstrate they will add value to the local community, or enhance sustainable, educational and employment opportunities for the community.

The Fund does not operate as a grants scheme; rather it operates as a partnership programme aimed at developing joint venture projects and community actions which seek to assist all members of the community. The Fund also aims to deliver a platform for engagement with the local community.

Information about eligibility and the application process can be found in the Community Partnership Fund guidelines. Click here to download the Community Partnership Fund application form.
