Everyone's Environment grants program

Round three successful recipients have been announced.

One hundred and seventeen recipients will share in almost $5 million to undertake projects in one of four streams of funding:

Eligible local groups across Queensland, including community and school based groups, landcare and conservation organisations, heritage owners and caretakers and research institutions, were able to apply for up to $100,000 in funding through this round of the program.

Successful grant recipients

Across the three rounds of the Everyone’s Environment grants program 308 organisations have been allocated almost $12 million to deliver their projects. These projects have resulted in significant achievements for Queensland, including:

  • almost 138,000 tree plantings
  • over 132,000 hectares weeded
  • over 140,000 kilograms of rubbish removed from local areas and waterways
  • 16,250 volunteers engaged.

Check out where in Queensland previous Everyone’s Environment projects have been successfully rejuvenating the environment and giving new life to our built heritage.
