2020 Greening our City grant

The 2nd round of grant funding awarded $10.2 million in late 2020. 50 projects were approved in Greater Sydney over two funding streams.

  • Stream 1 - Cooler Suburbs, focusses on supporting councils in Greater Sydney and is designed to promote tree planting in low canopy suburbs. The grant program provides funding support to care and maintain trees through their establishment period.

This stream unlocks future planting opportunities and fosters partnerships and collaboration between project groups and local councils or local government organisations.
