Stormwater Trust Strategic Grants Scheme

Current grant scheme - Strategic Grants  

The Stormwater Trust Strategic Grants were announced on 18 August 2003, offering 9 individual grants of between $54,000 and $180,000, totalling almost $1 million. The scheme supports projects that cost-effectively address common issues, knowledge gaps or impediments that councils face while implementing sustainable stormwater practices. Its focus is to provide funds for projects that will have significant and long-term benefits for the health of urban waterways and those that can easily be adopted or adapted by a number of councils to effectively address stormwater issues.
