Cooks River Alliance Encourages Locals to Apply for Sydney Water Grants

Sydney Water is now accepting applications for its annual Community Grants Program. The program provides funding for projects that benefit local communities in Greater Sydney, the Blue Mountains, and the Illawarra area.

This year, Sydney Water is particularly interested in funding projects that focus on water conservation. Projects that could be eligible for funding include:

  • Water conservation education programs that teach people about how to use water more efficiently
  • Community gardens that use drought-resistant plants and water-saving irrigation methods
  • Rainwater harvesting systems that collect rainwater for use in homes and businesses
  • Water efficiency audits that help businesses and organizations identify ways to reduce their water consumption

To be eligible for funding, projects must be completed within one year of the grant being awarded. Applications must be submitted by July 3, 2023.

The Cooks River Alliance encourages all local community groups to consider applying for a Sydney Water grant. Grants can provide much-needed funding for projects that make a positive difference in our community.
