Grassroots grants open

| Posted in

More than $110,000 is available for the Eyre Peninsula community to put towards local landscape management projects or events focusing on water, sustainable agriculture, pest plants and animals, biodiversity and community, under our Grassroots Grants program.

Eyre Peninsula Landscape Board Chair, Peter Treloar encourages the community to submit grants applications for landscape management and environmental protection projects.

“These grants are about inspiring the community to become actively involved in the sustainable management of our local natural resources,” Mr Treloar says.

“The Board has five regional priorities of water, sustainable agriculture, pest plants and animals, biodiversity and community – so if you have a project that focuses on one of these priorities, this funding could be beneficial.

“If you are keen to make a difference, the Board’s staff are here to help in navigating through the application process, and if successful, they will continue to provide support in delivering the outcomes you hoped to achieve.”

The grant program is open for applications until Monday, April 29.

There are two streams of funding for the 2024-25 grants:
• Small Community Grants for up to $5,000 (GST exclusive) and
• Large Community Grants for up to $15,000 (GST exclusive).

Full details about the Grassroots Grants including an application form, guidelines and FAQs, are available on the landscape board’s website.

Applicants need to engage with Eyre Peninsula Landscape Board staff early in the application process to ensure that all required information is included. The guidelines provide local contact details.
