Community Litter Grants

Funding Available for Community Groups
Keep NSW Beautiful and the NSW Environment Protection Authority (EPA) are running a grants program to resource community groups who want to undertake a project to cut litter in their neighbourhood. The grants are used to refurbish or improve a place where litter is currently accumulating.
The Community Litter Grants award up to $5,000 to groups who carry out a ‘Local Litter Check’ (following a specific methodology developed by the EPA) and use this information to come up with a plan to change the character of their litter hotspot from a public garbage can to a place community members can use and enjoy.
Even if you don’t want to apply for the full grant, you can acquire some funds for your group by doing the Local Litter Check alone, as all groups who carry out the Check will receive $300 reimbursement on top of the grant.

This project is a NSW EPA Waste Less, Recycle More initiative funded by the waste levy.
