SunSmart Shade Creation Initiative

SunSmart Shade Creation Initiative – Permanent Shade

Cancer Council Queensland and the Queensland Department of Health are excited to support the SunSmart Shade Creation Initiative. The Initiative provides 75 percent of the total cost of the project, up to a maximum of $20,000 for permanent shade. All eligible not-for-profit organisations, for example schools, sporting clubs, childcare centres, and community groups, that cater to children 0-18 years are encouraged to apply.

Please note: Queensland Department of Health have stipulated specific target areas for shade, and while all applications will be considered, these areas will be prioritised. Any questions, please contact us.
