The Sustainability Stream features two types of grant:

  • General Sustainability Grants: These grants support a range of smaller projects designed to deliver positive environmental outcomes (up to $4,000 per project).
  • Partnering for Sustainability Grants: This new category introduced in 2016 supports larger, more complex  projects that will leave a lasting legacy (up to $15,000 per project).

For information on the 2017 Yarra Annual Grants please visit the Community Grants page.
