The Hon. CATHERINE CUSACK: My question without notice is directed to the Minister for Climate Change and the Environment. What was the process for grants to community groups from the Climate Change Fund? Who decided on the grants, and what were the parameters for those grants?

The Hon. JOHN ROBERTSON: I thank the honourable member for her question on grants. The Government has a clear and transparent process for the issuing of grants and set criteria that every grant applicant is required to meet. There is also a determining audit process to ensure that the funded projects are delivered in accordance with that application.
