Community Shade Grants

The Victorian Government’s Community Shade Grants program is now open until 2 October 2019.

The aim of the Program is to reduce Victorians' exposure to UV radiation by increasing shade in public places and by promoting uptake of sun protective practices.

Funding is provided in 4 streams through grants of up to $50,000.

The Program provides funding for:

  • new permanent shade
  • repair or replacement of existing permanent shade
  • natural shade
  • portable shade
  • sun protective items.

Applicants may apply for a combination of new, repair/replacement, natural, portable shade and sun protective items. Each application may apply for shade for up to two sites.
