VIC $25,000 Shade Grants Program

Australia has one of the highest rates of skin cancer in the world, with two in three Australians diagnosed by the age of 70. Shade used in combination with other sun protection measures provides the best protection from harmful ultraviolet (UV) radiation exposure when spending time outdoors.

The aim of the Victorian Shade Grants Program is to reduce Victorians’ exposure to UV radiation by increasing shade in public places across the state and by promoting the uptake of sun protective practices.

Applications are now open for Shade Grants Program Round 7 2022.

  • Victorian government schools may apply for grants of up to $25,000 for shade development and can include up to $700 for sun protection items (excluding GST). School Shade Grant applications close 11:59 pm, 27 May 2022.
  • Eligible community organisations may apply for grants of up to $50,000 for shade development and can include up to $700 for sun protection items (including GST). Community Shade Grant applications close 11:59 pm, 10 June 2022.
