Greening our City grant 2020

The 2020 round of grant funding awarded $10.2 million to 50 projects in Greater Sydney across two funding streams:

Stream 1: Cooler suburbs

$8.1 million was awarded to 38 projects to boost council tree planting projects. As a result, Greater Sydney will have over 40,000 newly planted trees in public spaces, increasing shade and amenity in our parks and streets.

Stream 2: Green innovations

$2.1 million was awarded to 12 projects that will showcase best practice, scalable solutions to overcome barriers to tree planting. These projects will increase tree canopy and green cover across Greater Sydney, providing cooler neighbourhoods.
