  • Projects must demonstrate how they build leadership and capacity of community groups to deliver ongoing litter prevention outcomes.
  • Projects in this stream must align with and support the Own It and Actstrategic framework developed by the DPIE Litter Prevention Unit.

$ Available: up to $90 000.
