Communities Environment Program

Communities Environment Program

The Communities Environment Program provides each of the 151 electorates across Australia with up to $150,000 to fund small, community-led environment projects that address local environmental priorities. In consultation with their community, each Federal Member of Parliament must identify potential applicants and projects in their electorate and invite them to apply for a grant.

At a minimum, you must:

  • be invited to apply by your local MP
  • have an Australian Business Number (ABN)
  • be one of the eligible incorporated entities listed in section 4.1 of the grant opportunity guidelines

Other eligibility requirements apply.

The minimum grant amount is $2,500. The maximum grant amount is $20,000

Applications close: 10 October 2019.
