Coastal Community Grants Program

NACC provides small grants to help community groups protect and manage their coastal environment.
NACC’s Coastal Community Grants Program aims to improve the management and protection of the coastal environment to ensure its ecological values are retained for future generations.

Coastal Community Grants Now Open!

These grants provide resources to assist community groups to undertake on-ground coastal management and adaptation activities, enhance community skills and knowledge in rehabilitation, restoration and conservation of the coast.

Two separate grants cater for different community needs:

  • The Coastal Community Grants provide funds from $2,000 to $10,000 and are available only through a competitive assessment process at the start of each financial year.
  • Quick Step Grants provide funds up to $2,000 and are available as “first come, first served” throughout the year.
