Grants and funding

Climate Change Fund

The Climate Change Fund was established in 2007 to address the impacts of climate change, encourage energy and water saving activities and increase public awareness and acceptance of climate change.

There are currently no contestable grants available under the Climate Change Fund. A number of contestable grants and assistance programs (e.g. Green Business Program, Renewable Energy Development Program, Public Facilities Program, Home Saver Rebates, Central Coast Water Savings Fund) have been supported by the Climate Change Fund in the past. These programs have been discontinued. Details of these programs and their related projects can be found in the Climate Change Fund Annual Reports.

The fund currently assists the NSW Government to improve energy management in NSW. It does this by contributing funding to the Energy Efficiency Action Plan (EEAP) and the Government Resource Efficiency Policy (GREP). It also supports renewable energy through the Regional Clean Energy Program (RCEP).

Administered by the Office of Environment and Heritage, the Climate Change Fund was set up under the Energy and Utilities Administration Act 1987 .
