The Communities for Nature grants program supports:

Practical community action to deliver measurable environmental outcomes; Community groups and volunteers doing works primarily focused on the environment; and Communities with relevant and timely information to assess priorities at the local level to determine the best returns for on-ground works. Communities for Nature grants are targeted towards eligible organisations including local community groups and organisations, including schools. The program currently has up to $3 million to invest in small to medium grants of up to $50,000.

Projects that will be completed by 31 December 2015 are eligible for funding in this Round.
