Sustainability Stimulus Grant

In the 2021 Long Term Plan consultation, we asked the community if they would like us to adopt a Sustainability Stimulus Grant program of $100,000 per year for the first three years of the Long Term Plan as a trial.   

67.7% of respondents supported the grant.  As a result, Council have elected to proceed with the grant, which is designed to support initiatives that will reduce the city’s overall emissions profile, and aid in supporting our sustainability goals.

We’re working on putting together the policy, assessment criteria, and process for the grant at the moment, and we’re aiming to be open for applications in October 2021.  We'll update this page when we've got more information to share - watch this space!
