EnviroGrants applications now open for 2016

Calling all green thumbs, backyard horticulturalists, wildlife carers, school-based conservationists and anyone in between with a passion for protecting and improving the environment around them: applications for EnviroGrants are now open for 2016.

Parks, Health, Sustainability and Environment Committee Chair, Councillor Trevina Schwarz said the program offers financial support to environmental initiatives and projects, to community groups and individuals.

“Since 1995, Council’s EnviroGrant program has funded around $1million worth of projects across Logan City,” she said.

“The program is a great way to help start a variety of environmental projects – previous projects have included environmental revegetation and weed removal, creek restoration, funds to wildlife carers to assist with costs; and to create mini nature sanctuaries.

“I would strongly encourage any Logan City resident, school, community organisation or interested group with a passion for the environment or a project that will benefit the city’s furry, scaled, and feather residents to apply.”

EnviroGrants provide up to $5,000 per application for environmental projects and grants of up to $2,000 per application for wildlife carers.

Online application forms can be accessed on Council's website. Applications close at 5pm, Wednesday 9 March 2016.

Successful applicants will be announced at the 2016 Logan Eco Action Festival, being held on World Environment Day, 5 June 2016 at Griffith University Logan Campus.
