The following grant programs are currently open, which may be relevant to Landcare projects:
Hunter Region Landcare Network Workshop Grants
Thanks to the generous support of the Hunter Local Land Services, HRLN once again has funding available for a series of field-days/workshops, hosted by our Member Groups, on topics of interest to the Landcarers in their local area.
Previous events have included woody weeds workshops, bird and frog workshops native plant identification and creating habitat workshops. These events could also include fauna visiting your Landcare sites, managing soils, action planning or any other Natural Resource Management topic.
This opportunity is for members of HRLN so, if your group is not a member already, please apply online now.
If successful, your Group will receive up to $1500 for hosting the event which will improve the skills and capacity of the Landcarers in your local area. This funding allows for guest presenters, catering and other costs of hosting the workshop. It also provides general support for expenses the group may incur in carrying out Landcare activities or projects throughout the year. The workshop must be held before 31 May 2021.
