There will be a $5000 grant awarded to a successful female applicant who can demonstrate a requirement to extend or augment an existing business, or to start a new business within the Northam Shire.

Emphasis will be placed on a business which would employ the grant in such a way that other businesses in the area may be positively impacted.

The applicant would need to utilize a business plan to demonstrate the precise manner in which the funds would be spent.

The successful applicant would be required to liaise with Willy Regan at RSM (free service) to further define and consolidate her business plan, and present a talk about her business and the manner in which the grant was spent at a meeting or event the following year.
