Welcome to the Sydney Water Grants program

Sydney Water is looking to support grassroots community organisations and projects that are working to make neighbourhoods in the Sydney, Blue Mountains and Illawarra areas great!

Our Local Community Grants offer a helping hand to organisations that support local activities and services in the following categories: arts and heritage, safety, health and wellbeing or education.

Our Beat the Bottle Environment Grants are looking to support grass roots community cleanup groups that are either already established or in the process of establishing new groups.

Sydney Water encourages eligible community organisations to apply. We have made the application process as simple as possible so it should only take you around 60 minutes to complete. It can be saved at any time and finished later.

Please ensure you read the Sydney Water program information before commencing your application.
