Shade Trees & Shrubs In-Kind Grant

The Shade Trees and Shrubs In-kind Grant provides up to $220 worth of plants to eligible community organisations each year. Plants are distributed in early autumn and spring on a 'first-come, first-served' basis.

All plants are grown at the Toowoomba nursery so this program is limited by stock availability. If stock runs out, grant applications will be wait-listed.

To apply for a Shade Trees and Shrubs In-kind Grant, please complete a Shade Trees and Shrubs application form.

  • Habitat improvement on Public Lands.
  • Habitat improvement on Land used for Community Purposes.

Financial assistance

Grants of up to $5000 are available through the Environment Grants Program. Grant funds are limited in individual amounts and total funds available. Funding is for programs and projects including ‘seed funding’ to cover the costs of initial planning for larger projects.

Council officers can give advice and assistance in developing funding strategies, including advising on additional external funding for larger projects.
