Round 6—Conservation—Community Engagement on Queensland’s National Parks and State Forests
Applications are now open for Round 6—Conservation—Community Engagement of Queensland’s National Parks and State Forests of the Community Sustainability Action grants program.
From a funding pool of $700K, grants of up to $20K towards community projects to help clean up national parks which have been affected by floods and fires.
The Queensland government has announced a $700,000 funding package for national parks in the wake of the state’s devastating floods, offering community group grants to aid the clean up.
Environment minister Meaghan Scanlon made the funding announcement on the Gold Coast on Sunday, offering money for community-led conservation projects in national parks.
Weeding, planting and map trails are examples of projects that could be undertaken.
“Applicants are particularly encouraged to consult with, and consider partnering with, the Traditional Custodians of the Country on which their project is proposed to occur,” Minister Scanlon said.
All applications can be made until April 19 and must be submitted using the department’s online grants administration program.
