More than $13 million in contestable grants was awarded through the Restoration and Rehabilitation, Saving our Species, Environmental Education, Environmental Research, Protecting our Places, Eco Schools, Food Gardens in Schools and Lead Environmental Community Groups programs. In its second year the Waste Less, Recycle More initiative awarded more than $74 million in grants for a range of projects that support new community recycling centres, local government organics programs, major resource recovery infrastructure and landfill consolidation.

The $10 million Saving our Species Partnerships grants program commenced this year, awarding almost $4.2 million in funding to target 25 site-managed species and 20 co-occurring species from other Saving our Species management streams. Environmental outcomes this year include the establishment of biobank sites resulting in additional protection for sites within seven local government areas, and the acquisition of approximately 3292 hectares to be included in new and existing national parks.
