Wheatbelt NRM has welcomed the launch of the latest funding round for the State Natural Resource Management Program and is urging local community groups to get applying.
The State Government has made $8 million available in the latest round of the program, with applications now open for both Community Stewardship Grants and new Community Collaboration Grants.
Application for Community Stewardship Grants are open until May 17, including for small grants of $1000 to $35,000 and large grants of $35,001 to $450,000.
We want to help as many natural resource management projects in the Wheatbelt region get off the ground as possible.
If you are thinking about applying and are after information or guidance on the process, contact Regional Agriculture Landcare Facilitator Jacquie Lucas at email@example.com.
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.
They are open to any community and NRM group, schools, local government authorities, Community Resource Centres, recognised biosecurity groups and Aboriginal community organisations.
The new Community Collaboration Grants will close on April 5, supporting collaborative projects in regenerative agriculture, conservation of biodiversity, biosecurity and invasive species management, and management plan development for implementation of future works.
Community Collaboration Grant projects must be co-sponsored by three or more natural resource management groups.
