Applications are now open for the Andrews Labor Government’s $3.8 million Climate Change Innovation Grants.
Minister for Energy, Environment and Climate Change Lily D’Ambrosio today encouraged community members to apply for the grants and to attend one of the many marketplace events being held across Victoria.
The grants will provide between $50,000 - $300,000 in funding support to innovative projects and promote local action on climate change as we work to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
A series of events are being held during September and October across Victoria to discuss regional climate change priorities.
The Climate Change Innovation Grants are part of the Labor Government’s $5.6 million investment in the Virtual Centre for Climate Change Innovation Program.
Inaction is not an option, and these grants will help local communities work together to reduce emissions, adapt to climate change and grow the industries and businesses that will position Victoria for a low carbon future.
