The City of Canning offers funding to support our local residents to set up Play Street activities that increase social participation and promote social inclusion. We recognize that community funding creates an excellent opportunity to collaborate in building stronger connections within our community.
A $500 Eftpos voucher may be available for each individual Play Street through this funding category.
