Rain Garden 500 grant now open

21 February 2017

Rain Garden 500 is an Australian Government funded project, where local governments, community groups, schools, sports clubs, churches, businesses groups or even just a motivated collection of individuals can work with relevant land holders to apply for funding to build a rain garden in the Adelaide region. Rain gardens improve the quality of stormwater coming from our streets that returns to local creeks and the sea. This reduces pollution, improves seagrass health and benefits our marine environment.

Rain Garden 500 is part of a SA Catchment to Coast project supported by the EPA, through funding from the Australian Government’s National Landcare Programme.

The call for applications for 2017/18 projects is now open and close on 31 May 2017.

Further information, including information sheet, the expression of interest form, application form and the Rain Garden 500 Application Guide, is available on the SA EPA’s Rain Garden 500 web page.
