Time to reignite your relationship with your local MP. Applicants will be invited by your local MP.
In 2022, community-based tree planting events will be held across Australia to mark the Jubilee (70 years of service) of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II.
Planting Trees for The Queen’s Jubilee (the program) will run over 3 years across 2021-22 to 2023-24. The program will provide up to $15.1 million of grant funding to eligible groups and organisations for community-based tree planting events.
The objective of the program is to mark the significant occasion of Her Majesty’s Jubilee through community tree planting events across Australia. The program also intends to:
- increase community awareness and celebration of Her Majesty’s Jubilee
- create a legacy of tree plantings across the nation
- increase and/or enhance the area of tree canopy.
Opening date:11 Mar 2022 09:00 AM AEDT
Many more details are available at the link below. Including information on how to plant a tree.
Community consultation is a critical element of the program. In consultation with their community, each MP must identify potential applicants and projects in their electorate and invite them to apply for a grant. Invited applications will be assessed against the program’s eligibility criteria through a closed non-competitive process.
Each electorate has total funding of up to $100,000 that can be allocated to successful applications. A maximum of 10 projects will be funded in each electorate ranging from $2,500 to $20,000.
