Grants

By being a member of the Gold Coast Catchment Association, unincorporated groups are able to apply for funding through an auspicing agreement. The Gold Coast Catchment Association can provide advice on grants, a financial framework to direct funds to where they are needed and various administration duties. Keep an eye on this page as we will be adding funding opportunities for our member groups.

Feel free to contact info@goldcoastcatchments.org if you have any questions related to any of the grant applications.
