2021/22 Applications now open

Life’s better when we’re connected. That’s why, together with our local government partners, we’re helping to connect communities across WA. In 2021-22, Reconnect WA applications will be available for the total funding pool of up to $1 million based on two funding categories:

  • Projects with a total cost of up to $100,000 – RAC will contribute up to 80% of the total project cost (to a maximum partnership contribution of $80,000 per project). Demonstrations / pilots / trials with a duration of less than six months are eligible within this category, and projects should be on the ground within six months of funding approval.
  • Projects with a total cost of over $100,000 – RAC will contribute up to 50% of the total cost of the project (to a maximum contribution of up to $250,000 per project). A partnership contribution of up to $80,000 can be provided, even where this exceeds 50% of the total project cost. Projects which are temporary trials must have a trial period of at least six months. Projects should ideally be on the ground within 8 months of funding approval.
