Community Environment Grants of between $5,000 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
Applications close on Wednesday 8 May 2013
