Organisations can apply for grants of up to $50,000 through the Outdoor Active Recreation Participation Program which supports innovative projects that increase participation and promote inclusion in outdoor active recreation.

The program is administered by the Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries and applications should align with the More People More Active Outdoors Framework.

Individual grants of up to $25,000 are also available through the WA Hiking Participation Program which aims to help boost participation in hiking and trail running.

Applicants are encouraged to think of innovative and creative ways of growing Western Australia's community of bushwalkers, or trail runners when applying.

The WA Hiking Participation Program was a response to recommendations of the State Government's WA Hiking Strategy 2020-2030, launched in 2021. The strategy is the first of its kind in Australia.

Eligible organisations are encouraged to apply before Monday 28 November 2022.
