ENVIRONMENT RESTORATION AND REHABILITATION GRANTS NOW OPEN

Tuesday, 30 January 2018

NORTHERN Tablelands MP Adam Marshall is urging community groups and local councils to apply for a share of the NSW Government’s 2018 Restoration and Rehabilitation Grant Program.

“These grants deliver funding to local grassroots environmental projects that restore, protect and enhance a variety of environments in our region,” Mr Marshall said.

“Community groups and not-for-profit and government entities can apply for a grant between $5,000 and $100,000 to restore a damaged local reserve or riverbank or protect an endangered species through restoration of its habitat.”

The grant program aims to protect and restore ecosystems and care for the habitats of rare and endangered plants and animals.

The program has been running for over 20 years and is one of the longest running in Australia.

It has helped landholders, local councils, government agencies and community groups to restore habitats for native and engendered species, improve water quality and rehabilitate wetland areas.

“I urge our local councils and community groups to consider applying for funding for local projects,” Mr Marshall said.

Applications are now open and close on Monday, 26 March 2018.
