Community Environment Grants Now Available

Posted on 15 April, 2013 by Connecting Country

Community Environment Grants of between $5000 and $50 000 are now available from the Australian Government to community groups working to achieve an environment that is healthier, better protected, well managed and resilient.

Funding is available to established and emerging groups currently operating in the environmental sector, including Indigenous organisations. 

Individuals are not eligible to apply for Community Environment Grants.

Community Environment Grants will assist community based organisations to contribute to three strategic objectives, under the Sustainable Environment Stream of Caring for our Country:

  • Maintenance of ecosystem services, including ecological and cultural values, now and into the future
  • Protection of our conservation estate
  • Enhanced capacity of Indigenous communities to conserve and protect natural resources

More information regarding Community Environment Grants is available at the Caring for our Country website.  Also, Connecting Country’s Landcare Facilitator Max is also keen and available to speak to local groups about this or other funding opportunities.
