Communities Environment Program


Expressions of Interest are now open for the Communities Environment Program.

Australians care deeply about their communities and are passionate about protecting our local flora and fauna, our threatened species, and our beautiful natural environment.

The Communities Environment Program will harness that passion by helping grassroots community organisations to deliver practical local projects that build environmental awareness and re-connect Australians with their local environment.

The Communities Environment Program seeks to support community-led environmental projects that address local environmental issues and priorities. Each federal electorate has been allocated up to $150,000 in 2019-20 for up to 20 projects.

Grants can range from $2,500 to $20,000 per project. No matching funding by proponents is necessary under this program’s guidelines.

Please find below an Expression of Interest form, which you can be completed and returned to the office of Sussan Ley, Member for Farrer. If you have any questions or require further information, please contact Sussan Ley’s office who will be happy to assist.

Applications close 27th September 2019.
