Environmental Grants

Applications are closed for 2024.

Our Environmental Grants program assists and encourages schools and community groups to undertake environmental projects within Vincent – so go for it!

Environmental Grants – Schools

If your school is located within the City of Vincent, you can apply for an Environmental Grant to assist in developing and implementing projects or initiatives that raise awareness of environmental issues.

You may be eligible for grants up to $2000 for projects that target current environmental issues.

Environmental Grants - Community Groups

Are you part of a community group or not-for-profit organisation? Then you too can apply for an Environmental Grant to assist in developing and implementing projects or initiatives that involve the local community, to raise awareness of environmental matters.

The funding is an ideal way to help promote environmental issues and environmentally friendly practices, and also create environmental awareness. Also, grants of up to $2000 are available for projects that target current environmental issues and benefit the Vincent community.
