About the NPGP

The primary objective of the NPGP is to provide financial assistance to eligible organisations for outcome based projects, programs and initiatives to support participation in active lifestyles through the delivery of quality “Nature Play” programs and services for the benefit of all the Canberra Community.

The Nature Play Grants Program supports the diverse network of community organisations that provide quality experiences that attract and encourage use, exploration and appreciation of our natural areas and play spaces consistent with the ACT Government’s Recreation Vision, Connecting and Building Recreation: a vision for the Territory.
