Rain Garden 500 grants program – applications close 30 June 2016

12 May 2016

Applications are now open for the Rain Garden 500 grants program in the Adelaide region.   Local governments, community groups, schools or a group of motivated individuals are able to apply for funding to build a bioretention rain garden in the Adelaide region. The purpose of the rain gardens is to improve stormwater quality. Rain Garden 500 is part of the Catchment to Coast Project that aims to help build an understanding in the community on actions taken and how they impact on urban waterways, creeks and the coast. The Catchment to Coast project includes demonstration sites that can be viewed on our interactive map and case studies  in the Cities of Adelaide, Unley and West Torrens.

Rain Garden 500 is in its second year and will run for a further year with the current call for projects closing on 30 June 2016. Expressions of interest are encouraged for the subsequent year of the program. Visit the EPA website Rain Garden 500 | EPA for further information including the Application guide.

Rain Garden 500 is part of the SA EPA Catchments to Coast project, funded by the Australian Government National Landcare Programme.
