Environmental Grants provide funding for not-for-profit groups that provide an environmental benefit to our City villages. These projects can range from services, activities or resources that encourage great, green behaviour.
We really like ideas aligned to our Sydney 2030 goals so if you’ve got these in mind, we’d love to hear from you! Grants have been awarded to start community gardens, sponsor exhibitions on sustainable living and begin urban renewal projects. Grant submissions are accepted twice a year and info sessions are held before application closing dates so you can meet City staff and get all the details you need to apply.
Submissions are currently closed.
Applications will open again in mid July 2013.
What kind of projects are supported by environmental grants?
Grants we’ve supported recently include Speed Date a Sustainable Designer, the National Green Roofs Conference, workshop program for Green Strata, Second Hand Saturday at the Harris Community Centre, vegetable and herb garden at the Fort Street Public School and the Pyrmont Wildlife Corridor Extension to name a few!
