Environmental restoration and rehabilitation grants now open


Member for Bega Andrew Constance is calling on community groups and local councils to apply for 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 NSW environments,” Mr Constance said.

“Community groups, not-for-profit and government entities from across the state are encouraged to apply for a grant between $5,000 and $100,000.”

“We are fortunate to have amazing natural habitats across our entire region and I encourage those with a project idea to consider submitting an application,” Mr Constance said.

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.
