Funding round opens for NRM projects across WA

Community groups dedicated to caring for Western Australia’s precious environment can apply for grants from the Government’s latest State Natural Resource Management (NRM) funding round.

The Government has this year increased the funding available for local community-based projects through the Community Stewardship Grants program to $7.5 million. The 2020 grants funding round is now open for projects that help conserve natural areas, protect WA’s biodiversity and improve the capability of NRM community groups across the State. The two grant categories are small grants between $1,000 and $35,000, and large grants between $35,001 and $450,000.

Applications for the 2020-21 Community Stewardship Grants close on June 15, 2020. An additional $1 million will be made available to support core landcare and resource management activities of the seven regional NRM bodies and the Western Australia Landcare Network.
