A total of $275,000 in Department of Communities funding is available through the Youth Affairs Council of Western Australia (YACWA) for initiatives that help First Nations people aged 10 to 25 with increased representation, engagement and participation in decision-making.

The funding will be assessed by a panel of young First Nations people and First Nations community representatives, along with representatives from the Department of Communities and Youth Minister’s office.

Applications close 9 December. For more details, visit the YACWA website.
