The City of Sydney sponsors a wide variety of projects and initiatives. Priority is given to activities that help support Sustainable Sydney 2030.
The Environmental Grants Program provides funding opportunities for funding over $5,000 to support projects that provide a clear environmental benefit to the City community by delivering services, activities or resources that result in direct environmental improvements and/or develop knowledge, skills and confidence in the community to encourage environmental improvement within the local area.
