The grants are for projects that better integrate water into urban environments to reduce impacts on water quality and runoff on our environmental and built assets, and create a cooler, greener and wilder capital city.
The grant agreements are offered on a multi-year basis to allow successful recipients to exercise better alignment of grant funds with project milestones.
Any questions? Ask our Senior Water Projects Engineer Sam Phillips on firstname.lastname@example.org or call 0408 721 871.
Successful applicants will be announced in early 2022.
