How to access grants

The NSW Government wants to partner with you to prevent litter in your local area. We encourage you to apply for available grants under the NSW Litter Prevention Grants Program, and we will work closely with you to develop and implement exciting and impactful projects in your local area.

No matter if you are new to litter prevention or project delivery, we have resources and guidelines to help you design and deliver your project and support you through the process.

We have a range of litter prevention grants for councils, communities and businesses. Please review the available grants below and contact the NSW EPA Litter Prevention Unit at for more information on funding rounds.

Community Litter Prevention Grants

Community groups can target litter hotspots with this funding for small-scale local projects or larger strategic projects.

Cigarette Butt Litter Prevention Grants

NSW local councils, Regional Waste Groups, community groups, businesses, and other government agencies can use these grants to clean up cigarette butt litter hotspots.
