SunSmart Shade Creation Initiative

SunSmart Shade Creation Initiative – Permanent Shade

Cancer Council Queensland and the Queensland Government are excited to support the SunSmart Shade Creation Initiative.  

In 2022, not-for-profit organisations in Central West and South West Queensland, who cater to children 0-18 years, can apply for up to 100% of funding to a maximum of $25,000 to purchase permanent, hard roof fixed shade structures.

Check the maps below if you are located in the Central West and South West Queensland regions.

Eligible organisations include state primary and secondary schools, junior sporting clubs and community childcare facilities.

If your organisation is eligible, and you have not received funding in the last two years, we encourage you to apply.
