Funding boost for sustainability
Conservation SA has announced a new grants program to help community groups in South Australia deliver practical sustainability measures, thanks to $100,000 funding from the South Australian Government.
The Community Sustainability Grants have been created to help non-government organisations deliver practical, community-led projects with environmental benefits.
Grants of up to $10,000 are available for non-profits and community groups.
The grants will be available for projects that engage the community in practical environmental, sustainability and climate aware projects, including those with a focus on urban greening, coastal protection, and water sensitive urban design.
Craig Wilkins, CE Conservation SA welcomes the funding and said many small community groups have positive contributions to make in their local community with sustainability measures being just one of them.
“This funding will directly benefit groups who would otherwise find it difficult to raise the funds to deliver innovative, engaging climate mitigation initiatives.
“If you have an innovative project that engages community to undertake practical, local, sustainable actions, we encourage you to apply,” he said.
Applications are due by 9 November 2018.
