The objective of the Environmental Grants Program is to assist Council and to support the community to deliver the aspirations and commitments in our recently adopted Protect.Create.Live - Northern Beaches Environment and Climate Change Strategy. Applicants are strongly encouraged to read the Strategy and align proposed projects to its themes and goals.
