Project Grants support projects that address priority waterway improvement issues on a Melbourne Water waterway. Projects must be on public land with the approval of the land manager and have a focus on improving the condition of the riparian zone of a waterway, or a natural wetland.

Eligible organisations may apply for funds for more than one project at a time, up to $20,000 (excl. GST) per project. Applicants must show that they will contribute an amount equal to the funds requested in the form of cash or in-kind contributions.
