I would like to inform you of an exciting grant program that you may wish to make a submission.
In honour of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee in 2022, groups are invited to plant trees. When the Queen has visited Australia over the past 70 years, she has planted many trees, in fact 15,000. This year Australians are invited to plant some in her honour.
Community-based tree planting events will be held across Australia in 2022 to mark the Platinum Jubilee (70 years of service) of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II. Planting Trees for
The Queen’s Jubilee (the program) will run over 3 years across 2021–22 to 2023–24.
The program will provide up to $15.1 million of grant funding to eligible groups and organisations for community-based tree planting events. The objective of the program is to mark the significant occasion of Her Majesty’s Jubilee through community tree planting events across Australia. 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 honour 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.
The program complements other initiatives occurring across the Commonwealth to mark The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, such as tree planting initiative in the United Kingdom which is inviting people to “Plant a Tree for the Jubilee”
