Shade Grants Program – Now Open

The Department of Health and Human Services is inviting Victorian government schools and incorporated community groups to apply for a shade grant.

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

The program is offered across two grant categories:

  • School Shade Grants Program
  • Community Shade Grants Program.

Grants provide up to $25,000 for shade development in schools and $50,000 for community groups and can include up to $700 for sun protection items.  Applicants may also request up to $700 for sun protection items only.

Applications close on Wednesday 2nd October.
