Towards Zero Community Grants

Expressions of interest for Hepburn Shire Council’s Towards Zero Community Grants program are now open. This program aims to help community groups in reducing their carbon footprint through implementing energy efficiency, renewable energy generation or other suitable projects.

If your community group has a project in mind which could reduce emissions and operating costs, this program may be able to provide you with funding to implement it. Additionally, strong community support for the Hepburn Solar Bulk Buy throughout 2018 means that there is additional funding available for solar PV systems at community facilities.

Click here to view the Grant Guidelines. Interested parties are encouraged to contact Council’s Sustainability Officer at and lodge formal applications here by the 22 February 2019. This is a great opportunity for your community group to lower emissions and operating costs and is just one of the measures being carried out by Council to assist the community in the Zero Net Emission Transition – Z-NET.
