Natural Resource Management Environment Grants now open

Huon Valley Council is calling for applications for the 2023 Natural Resource Management (NRM) Environment Grants program.

Financial assistance is available for volunteer care groups and Landcare Tasmania members in the Huon Valley.

Two categories available for funding assistance include proposed projects that have a focus on improving or protecting the natural values within the Huon Valley (maximum value $4,000) and training and/or equipment to support a group’s continued operations (maximum value $500).

To be eligible, care groups and individuals must demonstrate that the proposed works align with Huon Valley Council’s NRM Strategic Objective 1: To protect and enhance natural land, coast and waterway systems and the flora and fauna that relies on them and the cultural and natural values within them.

Examples of previously funded projects include revegetation of a degraded creek line; swift parrot habitat recreation and installation of nesting boxes on Huon Island; and implementation of a citizen science water monitoring program.

Council’s Natural Resource Management Environment Grants webpage contains the latest guidelines, criteria, information on how to apply and the application form. Visit Natural Resource Management Environment Grants – Huon Valley Council Huon Valley Council.
