Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee 2022
The Australian Government is supporting a range of national and community events in 2022 to celebrate the Platinum Jubilee of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II. These events commemorate her dedicated service to the United Kingdom, the Realms, Australia and the broader Commonwealth over the last 70 years.
Investing in the significant occasion of Her Majesty’s Jubilee through community tree planting events across Australia
The Planting Trees for The Queen’s Jubilee Program is supporting eligible groups and organisations to honour The Queen and the legacy of her achievements during the year of her Jubilee through community-based commemorative tree planting events. Planting regionally appropriate species that enhance the tree canopy will also leave a legacy of its own—in the form of trees flourishing across the nation for Australians to enjoy into the future.
The program provides each federal electorate up to $100,000 in grants for up to 10 projects nominated by the local federal member of parliament, in consultation with their local community. Grants range from $2,500 to $20,000 per project. Projects align with the objective, expected outcomes and eligibility requirements of the program.
The program complements other initiatives taking place in the United Kingdom and across the Commonwealth to mark the Jubilee of The Queen, such as the United Kingdom’s Plant a Tree for the Jubilee initiative.
The Australian Government approved projects across Australia to support community-based commemorative tree planting events to enhance local environments and community well-being.
In accord with whole-of-Government requirements, details of the approved projects will be available at GrantConnect and a list of approved projects will also be provided on this website.
The location and details of completed commemorative and tree planting events across Australia will be added to the program’s interactive map as the projects are implemented. You are encouraged to regularly visit this site to explore how different communities have celebrated the Jubilee of The Queen.
The program is being delivered by the Business Grants Hub on behalf of the department. Detailed information on the program, such as the program guidelines can be found on the Business Grants Hub website.
