Grants Deadline Extended until 4pm 21st August 2017
Media Release
The Palaszczuk Government has opened the second round of its $12 million Community Sustainability Action Grants to projects that address conservation and climate change impacts or improve eco-efficiency of buildings.
Environment Minister Steven Miles said eligible community groups and individuals can apply for up to $50,000 for environmental conservation projects. A total of $2 million in grant funding will be made available.
“The second round of conservation grants is now open for applications until 15 August,” Mr Miles said.
“We received a tremendous response to the first round of these grants last year.
“102 recipients shared in more than $1.76 million in grant funding for projects across Queensland.
“$50,000 can go a long way for local projects to improve habitat and biodiversity and boost the climate resilience of Queensland’s natural landscapes.
“Innovation often requires up-front investment, so we are looking to support the development of new ideas – or grow existing programs – at the grassroots level.
“I encourage all organisations that want to reduce the impacts of climate change or protect and conserve the environment, to lodge an application for funding now.”

Well the Green Army is no more.
On the 19th December the Commonwealth Government decided to achieve savings of $224.7 million over four years from 2016‑17 by terminating the Green Army program.
Existing contracts under the program will continue to be funded and $21.4 million will be provided over two years from 2016‑17 for 119 Green Army projects to deliver on the Government’s election commitments.
The Government will redirect funding from this measure to repair the Budget and fund policy priorities, including:

  • $100.0 million over four years from 2016‑17 (including $5.0 million in 2016‑17, $35.0 million in 2017‑18 and 2018‑19 and $25.0 million in 2019‑20) to the National Landcare Programme;

The Green Army was a hands-on, practical environmental action programme that supported local environment and heritage conservation projects across Australia.
