Project Description

EPA Community Funding Program

Applications open: 



Inspiring Environmental Solutions (IES), EPA’s Community Funding Program, invites Victorian communities to develop projects which benefit both the community and environment affected by a pollution event.

Funding for the IES program is sourced through a legislative scheme where ‘the polluter pays’. Under the Section 67AC of the Environment Protection Act 1970, or through other remedy and sanctioning tools, a company or individual found guilty of environmental pollution may be directed by a court to fund a community environmental project instead of, or in addition to, paying a fine. This is how funding for the IES program is sourced.
