2022–23 ACT Environmental Grants Program

This year $480,000 have been allocated through the  ACT Environmental Grants Program across three funding streams:

  • $280,000 of funding made available for the Environment Grants, to support community projects that assist with the delivery of the ACT Nature Conservation Strategy 2013–23.
  • $150,000 of funding made available for the Nature in the City Grants, to enhance and improve the liveability of our urban open spaces
  • $50,000 of funding made available for the new Environmental Volunteer Group Assistance Grants, to support environmental volunteer groups in improving their capabilities and capacity to engage in environmental stewardship.

These grants provide ‘an opportunity for the community to address environmental issues they are concerned about, restore and conserve natural places that are special to them, and engage other community members to do the same’.

Applications close 4 April 2022.
