Climate Research Grants Program

Climate research can support Tasmanian businesses, industry and the community to prepare for the risks and opportunities of a changing climate. The Climate Research Grants Program aims to deliver climate change research that will improve our understanding of, and adaptation to, Tasmania’s future climate.

Funding now available

The Tasmanian Government is offering grants of up to $50,000 towards climate change projects that support research, and/or the development of decision support tools, that align with one or more of these seven Tasmanian priority research areas:

  1. Compound extreme events
  2. Agriculture sector
  3. Biosecurity and invasive pests
  4. Tourism sector
  5. Health and wellbeing
  6. Aquaculture and wild fisheries
  7. Tools for decision making

The total available funding pool is $350,000, and organisations can submit more than one application.

Who can apply?

The Grants Program is open to organisations such as research institutes, Tasmanian peak organisations, businesses, and not-for-profit organisations. Full details are provided in the Program Guidelines.

How do I apply?

You will need to read the Guidelines to see if your organisation and your proposed project is eligible. If it is eligible, you will need to complete the Application Form and submit it to the Tasmanian Climate Change Office.
