684 applications worth $7.9 billion received through the $1.6 billion WestInvest Community Project Grants – Competitive Round are progressing through the comprehensive assessment process, as outlined in the Guidelines. 

We can advise that we are reaching the final stages of this assessment process and expect to be in a position to inform all applicants of the outcomes from early next year. We acknowledge this is later than the date we originally advised, however due to the number of applications received, this process has taken longer than anticipated.
