Bushfire funding for Shoalhaven landholders
Tuesday, 21st June 2022
Since early 2020 the Great Eastern Ranges (GER) has been delivering a series of collaborative and complementary post fire recovery projects in priority locations across NSW. As part of this, GER in partnership with CEN/Land for Wildlife is currently seeking Expressions of Interest from fire impacted landholders within the Shoalhaven region for funding to support on-ground work. These include tree planting, weed control and fencing of native habitat.
The program is offering funding of up to $2,000 (subject to eligibility as below) to private landowners, primary producers and land managers to improve the condition and connectivity of native habitat within the Shoalhaven region. Funds are available to support a range of on ground activities including:
1. Install fencing to protect remnant native vegetation.
2. Control weeds to improve the quality and extent of habitat for native wildlife.
3. Plant trees and shrubs to connect patches of native vegetation and create corridors for animals.
Successful EOI’s will be invited to join Land for Wildlife - a voluntary property registration scheme for landholders who want to manage their land for wildlife and biodiversity. For more information, visit: https://www.cen.org.au/projects/land-for-wildlife.
Who is eligible to apply?
Landowners, primary producers and land managers within the Shoalhaven Council boundary area.
To be eligible to apply for a grant, applicants must: 1. be located within the Shoalhaven shire. 2. have a property greater than half a hectare. 3. join Land for Wildlife.
