All Environment Levy Funded grants must be acquitted eight weeks after the project is completed. All acquittals are completed on line.

The acquittal process is how grant recipients show council how they spent the funds as per their funding agreement.

Organisations cannot be considered for further council funding if previous grant acquittal conditions have not been met.
