Applications are now open to local governments for the first round of the Federal Government’s new $100 million Community Energy Upgrades Fund.

Grants of between $25,000 and $2,500,000 are available to councils across Australia to invest in energy-saving measures like replacing swimming pool heating systems with electric heat pumps, battery storage at sporting fields and the installation of electric vehicle chargers for council fleets.

The two-stage program aims to help councils unlock of total of more than $200 million in high-impact energy upgrades.

Round one applications are open until 30 April 2024, with grants to be awarded on merit.  Grant guidelines and applications are available here.

The improvements these grants are positioned to achieve reflect WALGA’s recent 2024-25 State Budget Submission on Community Infrastructure for sports and recreation, and culture and the arts.
