Assistance for Cairns Schools

21/10/2016
Cairns Regional Council has launched a new grant to help schools meet the cost of nature-based excursions.

The aim of the grant is simple…. To get more kids learning about nature, whilst in nature.

Each year, schools can apply for up to $2,000 for excursions to rainforest, reef, farms, wildlife parks, environmental education centres, cultural centres etc.

Applications are invited from 1 October through to 30 November 2016 with the excursion to take place within 12 months of receiving the grant.

Guidelines and application form are available at http://www.cairns.qld.gov.au/community-environment/sustainability/sustainability-grant-program

As this is the first year of the grant, anyone interested in applying is encouraged to email their idea to sustainability@cairns.qld.gov.au for feedback prior to submitting.
