Ratings and assessment funding supports organisations to undertake energy ratings and audits for the first time. The cost of first-year energy assessments can be a significant barrier to organisations, and this funding seeks to mitigate this cost.

Support is provided for credible industry accepted environmental performance ratings and energy audits.

Please see the grants and sponsorship guidelines for expected program outcomes and eligibility.

Successful applicants must commit to implement cost-effective opportunities.
