The City of Hobart recognises the important role communities play in tackling urban sustainability challenges. Through the Dr Edward Hall Environment Grant program, $30,000 is provided each year to assist schools, community groups and businesses with projects relating to energy efficiency, air and water quality, food gardens, waste reduction, climate change, sustainable transport and local biodiversity.
Through individual grants of up to $5000, the program has supported over forty projects in Hobart since 2011. These include school and community food gardens, aboriginal cultural knowledge sharing, a film festival, the development of solar guides for cool climates, outdoor classrooms, citizen science and lots more.
The 2016 Dr Edward Hall Environment Grants (Round 6) are now closed. Applications for the 2017 Grants program (Round 7) will be open in March 2017.
