Environmental Grants

To celebrate World Environment Day (5 June), Council offers grants of up to $2,000 for environment groups. 

Council Applications for 2018 are now closed.  2019 grants will open early next year.  

The grants aim to improve the communication of environment groups' work with local residents, or assist with local projects that improve the local community's knowledge of environmental assets or programs.
