Media Release: Funding Available for Local Environment Projects

The Morrison Government is investing more than $22 million across Australia in a new program to support local environmental projects, giving communities in Bradfield new opportunities to protect and care for our natural environment.

Under the Government’s Communities Environment Program, there will be funding of up to $150,000 available in the electorate of Bradfield, to fund up to 20 local projects, with grants ranging from $2,500 to $20,000 per project.

The Federal Member for Bradfield, Paul Fletcher MP, said that the Communities Environment program will empower local community groups to deliver practical improvements to the local environment.

“Community groups in Bradfield are already delivering many worthwhile projects, whether it’s planting trees, cleaning up local waterways, reducing litter or protecting native species” Mr Fletcher said.

“This additional funding will help these groups to make Bradfield cleaner and greener for future generations.”

A broad range of organisations are eligible for nomination, including community clubs, not-for-profit organisations, landcare groups and schools.
