  • Partnerships to support 57 initiatives and events
  • More than 450 regional initiatives have received approximately $4.5 million since 2020

Horizon Power’s community partnerships program has awarded $468,888 in funding to support 57 community organisations and events throughout regional and remote Western Australia.

The program has awarded almost $4.5 million to more than 450 initiatives in regional WA since 2020.

Recipients of the latest round include the Country Women’s Association in Derby, Carnarvon Golf Club and Esperance Soccer Association, with the funding to support upgrading their club facilities to better serve their members.

Events such as the Meekatharra Outback Festival, Denham’s Beats in the Bay and the Munumburra Festival in Wyndham will also receive funding.

Meanwhile, the State’s diversity will be celebrated with support for initiatives such as the Pilbara Pride Festival in Port Hedland and the Kepa Kurl Youth NAIDOC Ball in Esperance.

The State Government, through Horizon Power, provides $1.1 million each financial year to regional community initiatives and events, with $542,575 awarded to 66 regional organisations in October 2023.

Applications for the program’s next round will open in mid-July, with further details available at:

As stated by Energy Minister Reece Whitby:

“The Cook Government is committed to growing regional Western Australia and fostering vibrant communities throughout our State.

“I’m pleased to see such enthusiasm for Horizon Power’s community partnerships program, which has contributed approximately $4.5 million and supported more than 450 different initiatives across regional and remote WA.

“This is a fantastic achievement, and I am pleased to see the program’s latest round supporting 57 programs and events in our regions.”
