Successful grants will support, enhance and improve environmental sustainability in the local community.

Applications for the 2018 Community Environment Alliance grants program are now closed. applications for the 2019 CEA grants program will open in February 2019. If you are interested in making an application for the next round of CEA grants, please read the information on this page.

  • Energy efficiency upgrades (e.g. LED lighting, exterior shading, solar PV, draught proofing) and water conservation measures (e.g. rainwater tanks, shower heads);
