About the Grants

The annual community litter grants will open in April 2024.

Grants of up to $10,000 are available for initiatives that address litter. The grants provide financial assistance for action and education on litter prevention with a total of $60,000 available. 

KABC only funds projects that address litter management.

Litter is items on the ground, not in a bin.

What is the difference between litter and waste?
Litter is something that people discard on the ground and is not in its right place. Think of plastic in the waterways, cigarette butts or discarded food and drink containers. Waste is what is put into the bin and that’s all about resource recovery through recycling and reusing, and through sorting unwanted items into the right bin.

Who is eligible?

Local government authorities, community groups, small to medium sized enterprises and schools are eligible to apply for the grants, which must be for projects in the public domain. 

Applicants must have an ABN or must be auspiced by a supporting organisation with an ABN.
