​A​WARE grants program set to open on 1 March

23​ February 2018​

The Office of Emergency Management's (OEM) signature grant round, the All West Australians Reducing Emergencies (AWARE) program, will soon be open. 

The grant program is re-evaluated each year to support emerging needs. For 2018-19 the program has evolved to offer support to local governments in understanding their risk profile to enhance WA's Emergency Management (EM) arrangements.  Funding will therefore be available to assist local governments in completing their local level risk assessments.​

The grants round will be opening on 1 March 2018, and to be eligible the applicant must be a local government who has not yet received funding via AWARE for the completion of their local level risk assessment.

Eligibility criteria, application forms and other grant information will be available on the OEM website from 1 March.
It is recommended that applicants liaise with their relevant District Emergency Management Advisor (DA) for project specific queries, and the OEM for grant queries.  All contact will be registered, and any Frequently Asked Questions will be updated on the OEM website.​
