Local Activity Grants Program Evaluation

Local Activity Grants Evaluation

The Local Activity Grants program offered matched grants for local governments and community groups to encourage new and innovative approaches to increasing physical activity. The grants recognised a sustainable increase in physical activity requires a cross-government, multi agency approach.

The Local Activity Grants program was a joint partnership between the Physical Activity Taskforce and the WA Local Government Association (WALGA), made possible through a Lotterywest Grant.

The ninth and final round of the Local Activity Grants closed in November 2008, no further funding is available.

The following evaluation reports aim to provide information to assist Local Governments in planning and implementing community based initiatives.
