What the 2022 program offered
$25,000 in grant funding was allocated to 3 successful recipients.
As well as receiving financial support, successful recipients attend targeted information sessions delivered by Landgate and partnering agencies. The sessions provide valuable networking opportunities and assistance to engage with WA Government agencies and gain access to data and procurement processes. Previous cohorts consistently identified networking among the most valuable program components.
