Community, landcare, environment and other natural resource management groups in Forde can apply for funding to help restore the environment in the Logan and Gold Coast regions under the Coalition Government’s $5 million Environment Small Grants opportunity.
The Government is providing the grants under Phase 2 of the National Landcare Program to help communities deliver natural resource management activities to improve the quality of their local environment.
Federal Member for Forde Bert van Manen MP said local groups and individuals can now apply for grants to deliver activities such as invasive pest and weed management, revegetation, erosion control, community engagement, and Indigenous land management planning.
“Our pocket of south east Queensland is blessed to have such beautiful parks and landscapes and it is important to protect and preserve them for future generations,” Mr van Manen said.
“I strongly encourage all interested groups and organisations to put their hands up for one of these grants to help keep our region beautiful.”
Applicants have until March 19, 2018 to apply for funding of between $5000 and $50,000 for each project.
The small grants will be allocated through a one-off grant in the 2017-18 financial year.
