The Australian Government is partnering with local governments to deliver the $100 million Community Energy Upgrades Fund.

  • installing energy-efficient lighting at sporting fields, libraries and community centres
  • investing in other energy efficiency upgrades

Who is this for?

Local councils for community facilities like local pools, sporting clubs and community centres. The assistance will help councils cut their emissions and reduce their energy bills.

Funding Amount:

Grants between $25,000 and $2,500,000 to cover up to 50% of eligible expenditure. Applicants must contribute at least 50% of the agreed eligible project costs.
