20 Million Trees Program opens

Round one invites applications from individuals, organisations and community groups for grants of ,000 – ,000 to plant trees in urban, peri-urban and regional environments across Australia.

The program will support projects involving the community in re-establishing native vegetation, provide habitat to support threatened species, sequester carbon from the atmosphere and help create greener spaces to improve the liveability of Australia’s cities and towns.

Applications close at 2pm AEDT Thursday, 10 30.
