ECO Fund

Environment. Community. Otago.


What is the ECO Fund?

The ECO Fund supports community-driven projects that protect, enhance and promote Otago's environment.

Otago Regional Council contributes $290,000.00 every year to the ECO Fund, and this is split into two funding rounds. 

The ECO Fund supports not only shovel time, but also administrative support. Whether your project is large or small, we welcome your application. 

The ECO Fund is open for applications from 1-20 March and 1-20 October annually. Please see the Funding Checklist to see if your project is eligible and get in touch with us by emailing to discuss your project before submitting an application.
