Do you have a great idea for an environmental project that will help the local environment and the local community? Just need some funding to get started?
The EnviroGrants program aims to enhance and protect the natural environment and foster environmentally sustainable practices across the City of Logan through community awareness and participation. Two types of grants are available:
- Funding for Environmental Projects/Research/Education; and
- Wildlife Carer Grants - funding for native wildlife carers to be reimbursed for costs associated with the rehabilitation and caring of native wildlife in the City of Logan.
The EnviroGrants program:
- Offers grants of up to $5,000 per project for Environmental Projects/Research/Education;
- Offers grants of up to $2,000 per Wildlife Carer Grant.
Projects considered for funding must occur within the City of Logan and relate to one or more of the EnviroGrants categories. The EnviroGrant Fact Sheet (PDF 7105 KB) outlines information regarding the specific EnviroGrant categories, how to apply, and the assessment process.
The next round of EnviroGrants will open in January 2018 and close in March 2018.
