What is the Gellibrand CEP?
The 2019 Gellibrand Communities Environment Programme supports small scale, community-led environment projects that address environmental priorities in Melbourne’s West and give our community the resources, skills and knowledge to care for the environment.
For each project, the grant amount will be up to 100 per cent of eligible project costs though additional cash and/or in-kind contributions towards the project costs are strongly encouraged.
Up to $150,000 will be allocated to projects within Gellibrand. Successful applications are then submitted to the Government for review and final sign off.
The intended outcomes of the program are better management of natural habitats and native species, reduced levels of threats and risks to the environment (litter, waste, pest animals, weeds, run-off) and increased community knowledge, participation and connection with the natural environment.
Examples of the kind of activities that can be funded under this grant include.
