Community Assistance Program Projects

CAP - Projects

There are many ways that local residents and groups are protecting, maintaining and enhancing our natural environment and strengthening our community capacity to live sustainably.  

The Environment and Sustainability grant category under Council's Community Assistance Program is designed to support community-led environment and sustainability initiatives, and further the objectives of Council’s Environmental Sustainability Strategy. 

The Environment and Sustainability Scheme was launched in early 2019. Congratulations to the following organisations that have already received funding and support for their initiatives under the new Scheme.
