Oxley Expressions of Interest for this Grant closed on Friday 11th March.
My office is now accepting Expressions of Interest for the Planting Trees for The Queen's Jubilee Grant.
What do you get?
Funding of between $2,500 to $20,000.
In 2022, community-based tree planting events will be held across Australia to mark the Jubilee (70 years of service) of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II.
Planting Trees for The Queen's Jubilee (the program) will run over 3 years across 2021-22 to 2023-24. The program will provide up to $15.1 million of grant funding to eligible groups and organisations for community-based tree planting events.
The objective of the program is to mark the significant occasion of Her Majesty's Jubilee through community tree planting events across Australia. The program also intends to:
increase community awareness and celebration of Her Majesty's Jubilee
create a legacy of tree plantings across the nation
increase and/or enhance the area of tree canopy.
The program complements other initiatives occurring across the Commonwealth to mark The Queen's Jubilee, such as the tree planting initiative in the United Kingdom which is inviting people to "Plant a Tree for the Jubilee".
Community consultation is a critical element of the program. In consultation with their community, each MP must identify potential applicants and projects in their electorate and invite them to apply for a grant. Invited applications will be assessed against the program’s eligibility criteria through a closed non-competitive process.
Each electorate has total funding of up to $100,000 that can be allocated to successful applications. A maximum of 10 projects will be funded in each electorate ranging from $2,500 to $20,000.
