The word came out yesterday that the 2013 Small and Large Grants Funding Opportunity is open until 13th September 2013.
The program has up to $4,000,000 to invest for the 2013 for small grants of up to $10,000; and for large project grants of $10,001 to $150,000.
The Communities for Nature grants program supports:
- Practical community action to deliver measurable environmental outcomes
- Community groups and volunteers doing works primarily focused on the environment.
- Communities with relevant and timely information to assess priorities at the local level to determine the best returns for on-ground works.
Communities for Nature grants are available to eligible to local community groups and organisations, including schools. If you are new to this process, applications need to be made online so allow plenty of time and follow the guidelines. Ask a local landcare facilitator for assistance if you need it as they may be able to assist with finding project partners.
