Energy Efficiency Grants for Small and Medium Sized Enterprises - DCCEEW


Round 2 of the above grant has just been announced and will open in NSW on 26/2 with a pool of $14,919m.
Grants of $10-$25k are available.
If interested, we need to be ready to begin writing as soon as the grant opens and submit as soon as we have finished writing the application.
This is a demand driven grant program which means as soon as the funding pool is exhausted, the program will close. In NSW, this will be within a few days of the grant program opening.
