Environment Grants funding is provided for community based projects to help reduce impact on the environment. By facilitating engagement with the community these projects can help mitigate harm and raise awareness to enable the safeguarding of the Northern Territory's unique environment.
Over the past seven years this program has provided over $5 million to fund a diverse range of projects across the Territory. This unique program offers exciting new opportunities for community groups, industry associations, schools and education providers to undertake environmental projects in the Northern Territory. Environment Grants are available annually for projects and educational activities in the Northern Territory.
In 2014-2015 the grant program has two grant types:
- Individual Project Grants; and
- School Project Grants.
For more information on the grant components follow the links on the left.
Changes for 2014-2015
There are two significant changes in this year's grant round:
1. Changes to the grant categories
The NT EPA acknowledges the importance of grant categories that have previously featured as a part of the grants program. It is considered that it would be more fruitful to focus on the issue of ‘Waste’ in 2014-15 given the importance and close alignment with the NT EPA’s core business. For more information on the types of applications we are looking for please refer to the School Project Grants section and the Individual Project Grants section. For a full description on what is expected in an application refer the application guidelines for the respective grant types:
2. Budget Section to be included in the Expression of Interest Stage for Individual grants
The budget section of an application can reveal a lot about how much thought has been put into an application. Assessment panels in the past have often had questions in relation to the budget but have not had the opportunity to address these with the applicant. By including the budget in the EOI the assessment panel will be able to provide more holistic feedback on the applicants.
