Community Facility Energy Upgrade Grants

Total funding available: $20,000

The Community Facility Energy Upgrade Grant (CFEUG) provides funding to eligible not-for-profit community groups and organisations to support the implementation of renewable energy and energy efficiency projects at community facilities. This funding aims to help reduce the energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions from community facilities. This in turn reduces the energy costs for community facilities and strengthens their long term financial sustainability.

The application period for this grant stream is now closed.
