Changes for 2016 - 2017

New Grant Category for School and Project Grants

Stormwater has been added as a new category to the School and Project Grant types. This has been added to encourage projects that deal with issues raised in the NT EPA's strategy: "A Stormwater Strategy for the Darwin Harbour Region"

School and Project grants now include three categories:

  • Waste
  • Pollution
  • Stormwater


For some examples of what projects can be done under the stormwater category and more information on what is expected in an application please refer to the guidelines for the respective grant types:

Larger Amounts Available for Project Grants

Project Grant applications limits have doubled.  Project Grant applications can now be submitted up to a value of $20 000.

School Grants Will Remain Open

In 2016/2017 the School Grants will be conducted as an open grant round. Applicants do not have to wait until the closure of the grant round for applications to be assessed and paid out. Applications will be assessed against the assessment criteria as they are received. This grants round will be open while funds are still available, or until the 3 April 2017.
