Keep Australia Beautiful Community Litter Grants provide funding for projects that seek to change littering behaviour and work towards a litter-free Western Australia. 

Grants of up to $10,000 are available for major initiatives or regional projects, with grants of up to $5,000 available for local area projects.  

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.

cupsGrant recipient, Vic Park Transition Network, has implemented the 'Borrow and Bring Back Community Dishes Kit'.  By Christmas day 2018, 490 items will have been used and reused. That’s potentially 490 pieces of single-use and disposable packaging refused. By this time next year, the numbers should be well into their thousands.

In theory, anyone can borrow the Community Dishes kit. In practice, because it relies on trust and goodwill to ensure the items are returned (and clean), it needs to stay local and with a community focus. Read here

Be a better BuilderGrant recipients in 2016/17, the Shire Of Serpentine Jarrahdale used their grant to help fund a strategic and targeted approach to tackling builder's waste in conjunction with strategies already being undertaken by the Shire. Reports suggest that the signs are helping to reduce waste and give residents the information to report litterers. In one case a resident reported two builders for dumping as a result of one of the signs obtained with the grant.  The Ranger then contacted them both and the rubbish was removed the same day.

How could a grant for your project make an impact on litter?
