Community grants available to reduce climate change impacts

By intouch posted 12 November 2019 05:19


Grant applications are open until the end of January for NSW community projects supporting local action on climate change.

The Increasing Resilience to Climate Change (IRCC) community grants program is providing $600,000 in its first round. Grants between $10,000 and $30,000 are available for individual projects.

Community groups can partner with local councils in their applications for funding under the IRCC.

The grants are funded through the NSW Government’s Climate Change Fund. IRCC grant funding has already benefited Western Sydney Regional Organisation of Councils for a cool suburbs rating tool and Bega Valley Shire Council to upgrade community halls to be more climate-resilient during extreme heat events.

Apply for round one funding by 31 January 2020
