Nature Grants for local Communities

Below is a copy of a recent NCCMA communication

Yesterday, the Victorian Government launched Round 5 of the Communities for Nature program - small to medium grants of up to $50,000.


The Communities for Nature grants program supports:

•Practical community action to deliver measurable environmental outcomes;

•Community groups and volunteers doing works primarily focused on the environment; and

•Communities with relevant and timely information to assess priorities at the local level to determine the best returns for on-ground works.


Communities for Nature grants are targeted towards eligible organisations including local community groups and organisations, including schools.



The program currently has up to $3 million to invest in small to medium grants of up to $50,000. Projects that will be completed by 31 December 2015 are eligible for funding in this Round.


Projects are expected to address local environmental issues such as:

•Biodiversity and habitat preservation such as tree planting (preservation of areas known for their biodiversity and habitat values), or

•Threatened species recovery, or

•Sustainable management of native wildlife, or

•Revegetation (of areas that enhance existing habitat or connectivity) , or

•Cleaning up waterways (creeks, wetlands, streams, rivers and seas), or

•Control of weeds and pest animals.


Applications close 4.00 pm 1 September 2014.



For further information or a copy of the application form please contact the Department of Environment and Primary Industries by phone 1300 366 356 or online
