Expressions of interest are now open for the Planting Trees for the Queen’s Jubilee program

Planting Trees for The Queen’s Jubilee will mark the significant occasion of Her Majesty’s Jubilee through community tree planting events across Australia to mark the Jubilee (70 years of service) of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II, in 2022.

Grants are available to community organisations and schools for funding between $2,500 and $20,000.

Your project must involve:
– At least one formal commemorative event in 2022
– Durable signage or a plaque(s) identifying the plantings are part of The Queen’s Jubilee commemorations
– Planting regionally-appropriate tree species that when mature, have a height of 2 meters or more

The intended outcomes of the program are to:
– Increase community awareness and celebration of Her Majesty’s Jubilee.
– Create a legacy of tree plantings across the nation for Australians to enjoy that also serve to honor the memory of The Queen and her 70 years of service to Australia and the Commonwealth.
– Increase and/or enhance the area of tree canopy.

Obtaining a grant is a 4-step process:
– Fill out the expression of interest form online before 11:59pm on the 20th March 2022 to be considered by the community consultation committee to be nominated to apply.
– If your organisation is nominated, you’ll be invited to apply.
– Fill out the online application form.
– If your application is approved, you’ll receive a notification and next steps.

The eligibility criteria for entities and projects is outlined in the Grant Opportunity Guidelines at business.gov.au. It is strongly recommended that you read and understand the guidelines before submitting this EOI, as projects which do not meet the requirements cannot be considered.
