Environmental Grants

World Environment Day Grants 2021 

To celebrate World Environment Day, 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.

Submissions for the 2021 World Environment Day grants close at 11:59pm on Sunday 23 May 2021.
