Reinvigorating Streets and Spaces Fund

As the first funding stream of the Reconnect WA initiative, the Reinvigorating Streets and Spaces Fund will support local governments to deliver quick, low-cost demonstration and pilot projects to test ideas and create more people-friendly streets and inviting spaces.

The fund offers a total of $500,000 in 2020-21, enabling RAC to co-fund community based projects applying 'tactical urbanism' principles, delivered by local governments with their communities.

Funding is available in two categories

Rapid Revival Demos

Quick delivery of short-term localised demonstration projects to test ideas for changing the nature or feel of streets and spaces, or roll-out low-cost enhancements.

Strengthening Places Pilots

Medium-term community-based projects delivering low-cost, semi-permanent improvements to change the nature or feel of streets and spaces. 

 

Submitted projects are now being assessed and we look forward to sharing updates shortly.
