AN Eglinton developer has launched its 2017 community grants program, offering groups in the City of Wanneroo up to $1000 each.

Stockland has allocated about $300,000 for more than 280 organisations nationally to use for community-building groups and activities.

Groups have until March 31 to lodge applications here, with the developer choosing winners based on key community and environmental focus areas.

Those include health and wellbeing; education; community connection; biodiversity; waste and materials; carbon and energy; and water management and quality.

Previous grant recipients have included local environmental groups, animal care and welfare groups, local charities and local primary and high schools seeking additional funds to launch special, community-based programs, as well as a host of local sporting, special interest and social clubs.

Recipients will be announced mid-June.
