Community Energy Efficiency Program
The Community Energy Efficiency Program (CEEP) was part of a suite of measures announced in July 2011 as part of the governments' climate change strategy. CEEP is a competitive merit-based grant programme that provides co-funding to local governing bodies and non-profit community organisations to implement projects that deliver a range of energy efficiency measures in council and community owned buildings, facilities and sites; particularly where this would benefit low socio-economic and other disadvantaged communities or support energy efficiency in regional and rural councils.
For local government and non-profit community organisations, this includes council buildings such as town halls, chambers, libraries and administration buildings; council facilities such as bores, depots and sewerage treatment centres; community buildings such as museums, theatres, libraries, hubs and arts centres; as well as sporting and recreation facilities, aquatic and leisure centres, parks, ovals and reserves.
Across two funding rounds 160 recipients were successful in securing grants worth a total of $106.2 million. Payments to existing grants will be made up until 30 June 2016.
There were separate guidelines for each funding round under the Community Energy Efficiency Program.
