The Climate Communities grants program is a Victorian Government initiative designed to promote and support local actions to tackle climate change. It provides local groups across Victoria with information, advice and grants of up to $50,000 to take practical action on climate change in their own communities.

The Climate Communities grants program will help to link existing community networks centred around local councils, service clubs, schools and environment groups. It will also encourage and support the establishment of new groups who wish to take environmental action at a local level.

The key objectives are to support local communities to:

* reduce emissions

* build community resilience to adapt to climate change

* trial and/or promote new ideas to help tackle climate change.

The program, managed by Sustainability Victoria, supports communities by providing grants of up to $50,000 for community organisations. The Victorian Government has also appointed Climate Communities facilitators to work with local communities across the state. These facilitators will provide information, advice and assistance with grant applications.
