Coastal grants

Our annual Coastal Grants Program aims to support local groups and individuals in helping to care for the coast.

Grant applications for 2016 are now open

Great Ocean Road Coast Committee's annual coastal grants program aims to support local groups and individuals in helping to care for the coast. 

A pool of $10,000 in grant funds is offered and will be split between applicants as determined by project needs.  Funds will be awarded for approved environmental activities in coastal areas under Great Ocean Road Coast management and should aim to enhance the natural environment.  Projects must have a coastal focus and have a direct impact on the 37km of Crown foreshore land between Torquay and Lorne managed by Great Ocean Road Coast Committee.

Previous grants have supported a diverse range of projects from the procurement of tools and cigarette butt bins to weed control, revegetation and environmental educational projects.
