Powering Communities Program Grant Opportunity

About the Powering Communities Grant Program

The Powering Communities Program (the program) will run over 2021–2022. The program provides grants to not-for-profit community organisations to improve their energy efficiency practices and technologies leading to a reduction in energy use, improvement in energy productivity and delivery of carbon abatement.

The opening date for grant applications is 1 July 2021 and will close on 20 September 2021.

The objectives of the program are to assist not-for-profit community organisations to:

  • upgrade equipment to reduce energy consumption
  • undertake energy management activities and assessments, such as energy systems assessments and feasibility studies
  • invest in energy monitoring and management systems
  • invest in on-site renewable energy and solar-connected batteries.

The intended outcomes of the program are:

  • improved energy efficiency practices and technologies for not-for profit community organisations
  • reduced energy use and lower energy bills
  • improved energy productivity
  • to deliver carbon abatement.

Community consultation is a critical element of the program. In consultation with their community, each Member of Parliament (MP) will identify potential applicants and projects in their electorate and invite them to apply for a grant. We will assess invited applications against the program’s eligibility criteria through a closed non-competitive process.
