To celebrate World Environment Day on 5 June 2020, Council offers annual grants for new or established community organisations to deliver environmental projects or programs that have a positive impact on the local environment and/or promote environmental stewardship and sustainability.
To celebrate the new decade, we are happy to announce that the size of the total grant pool has been increased from $10,000 to $40,000. This means Council will be able to support more and larger projects up to $10,000, on top of the smaller projects we have supported in previous years.
Please refer to World Environment Day Grants Program Guidelines(PDF, 293KB) for more information.
Submissions for the 2020 World Environment Day grants will open 9.00am, 1 April 2020 and close midnight 30 April 2020 (AEST).
