City of Kwinana Grants and Rebates 

Local Commercial Support Grant 

Two rounds of the Commercial Support Grant are released each year. Applications for the next round are closing 5pm Friday, 1 March 2024. The City of Kwinana recognises that local businesses play an important role in the quality of life of the community. Local businesses increase the vitality of our City and are an important source of employment for local residents. The purpose of this grant is to encourage business owners to invest in making improvements to their business and to engage other local business and services to carry out this work.

The grant funds will be allocated on a competitive basis via an Expression of Interest (EOI) process. The grants will take the form of reimbursement (to a maximum of $1,000) for specified types of expenses for example physical upgrades, security features, strengthening online presence and professional development. Disbursement of grant funding will occur on receipt of final paid invoice.

To apply, review the eligibility requirements and complete the relevant Expression of Interest form through the City’s SmartyGrants portal. You will first have to create a profile and then log in to submit your application. 

If you have any queries or to discuss your proposal, contact the economic development team at ed@kwinana.wa.gov.au or by phone on 9439 0241. Please refer to the current policy for Commercial Support Grants here.

The following local businesses are eligible to apply for funding:

Retail Business Application

A shop, local shop, liquor store, health studio, eating house, fish shop, tavern, showroom or trade display as defined by Local Planning Scheme No.2. Essentially this means businesses that have a retail trade component and are located in the City of Kwinana.

Homebased Business Application

A business that is operated from the dwelling/private residence of the business owner within the City of Kwinana and has been in business for at least 12 months at the time of application.

CCTV $50 Rebate

In a WA first, the City of Kwinana has partnered with WA Police to provide $50 rebates when local businesses and residents register existing functioning CCTV systems with Cam-Map WA.

The platform allows businesses and home owners to self-register the location of their CCTV system onto a secure database which is operated by the Western Australian Police Force. The knowledge obtained from knowing the locations of installed CCTV systems will support WA Police in investigations and ultimately enhance public safety within the community. Police will contact the resident or business owner for footage should an incident occur. To check eligibility and to register, visit CCTV Registration Rebates

Small Business Friendly 

The City of Kwinana is proud to be recognised as small business friendly as part of the state's Small Business Development Corporation (SBDC) initiative. This initiative formally recognises local governments that are demonstrating, or working towards, 'better practice' in engaging with their small business community.
