A program that ran in 2019 for projects that improve our natural environment.

Is your organisation doing its bit to protect our environment? I know so many organisations across Cowan are!

In 2019, the Federal Government ran the Communities Environment Program for the first time. Up to $150,000 of funding was available in Cowan for projects improving our natural environment – eligible projects included waste reduction, improving natural habitats, or reducing environmental threats (like weeds), among others. Individual organisations could receive a Commonwealth grant of between $2,500 and $20,000 for a project.

Take a look at the fact sheet and guidelines for an indication as to whether your organisation might be eligible for any future rounds that are announced! Further information about the Program is also available at

Any questions about how the Program unfolded in Cowan in 2019? Feel free to contact my office at [email protected].
