Do You Have a Great NRM Project in your Community?

There is just one month to apply for the latest round of the State Natural Resource Management program and we would love to see projects in the Wheatbelt NRM region receive support.

Up to $8 million is available in the current round. While applications for Community Collaboration Grants are now closed, you can apply for Community Stewardship Grants until May 17.

If you are thinking about applying and are after information or guidance on the process, get in touch with us at info@wheatbeltnrm.org.au.

Applications can be made for small grants of $1000 to $35,000 or larger grants of $35,001 to $450,000.

It is not just NRM organisations that are able to apply, with any community group, local government, school, Community Resource Centre, recognised biosecurity group or Aboriginal community organisation able to throw their hat in the ring.

Wheatbelt NRM chief executive Karl O’Callaghan said the State NRM program helped local people take action to achieve better social and environmental outcomes.

“Many hands make lighter work and we know change can only be achieved with community action at the local level,” he said.

“We urge any group in the Wheatbelt with a project they are passionate about to apply for funding before the deadline.”

Community Stewardship Grants will be awarded to projects which help conserve a local natural area, protect WA’s biodiversity, promote regenerative agricultural practices and support the capability of NRM community groups across the State.
