The Australian Government is investing up to $22 m this financial year to support small scale on-ground projects that aim to conserve, protect and manage our environment.
Each federal electorate will receive up to $150,000 in grant funding to support up to 20 community-led projects that address local environmental priorities. Projects are to align with the objectives, expected outcomes and eligibility requirements of the program.
Grants can range from $2500 to $20,000 per project and the majority of funding must be directed to on-ground activities within the electorate of the nominating Member of Parliament. Cash and/or in-kind co-contributions are encouraged.
Interested organisations will need to contact their local Federal Member of Parliament to discuss local environmental priorities and/or potential projects.

As with all funding opportunities Wheatbelt NRM is here to help make sense of the rules and can potentially sponsor groups that are not incorporated or don’t have an ABN. Contact RALF Jacquie Lucas for assistance firstname.lastname@example.org.
