Climate Action Grants Program opening soon

01 July 2024

Are you looking for support to make your business more sustainable? Mornington Peninsula Shire’s Climate Action Grant  program provides funding up to $10,000 to support small businesses on the Mornington Peninsula to help us reach our climate emergency goals.

What can the Climate Action Grant be used for:

  • Projects that help reduce waste to landfill e.g., Sorrento Golf Club’s Food waste dehydration system to process waste into fertilizer for grounds.
  • Projects that increase biodiversity and landscape connectivity e.g., Hickinbotham of Dromana’s regeneration of native open woodland project and ‘Revillaging Project’s worm farm and biodiverse indigenous shelterbelt to support the productivity of their vegetable farm.
  • Projects that reduce greenhouse gas emissions e.g., BFE Hire’s ‘Solar panel and battery installation project’.
  • Projects that increase carbon sequestration e.g., Southern Seagreens’ establishment of a seaweed reproduction nursery (lab)
  • Projects that empower our community to take climate action/encourage behaviour change e.g., Polperro’s ‘Cool Changes community education and empowerment program’
  • Projects that increase sustainable transport – do you have a project idea for this!?
