Grants and funding

2019/20 Community Grants now open

Following on from the success of the 2017/18 Community Grants program, the SA Arid Lands NRM Board has opened a second round of the grants program.
Land managers, progress associations and volunteer groups in the SA Arid Lands region are encouraged to submit applications for grants of up to $10,000 for natural resources management (NRM) projects.
Successful projects will be assessed against criteria that include broad alignment with the new SA Arid Lands NRM Board’s Regional NRM Plan 2017-2027 .
The Board welcomes applications from single groups and properties; however collaborative, multi-partner applications tackling landscape-scale issues will be viewed favourably.
To find out more about the criteria for assessment and the grants program, view the information sheet.   It is recommended you read this before completing your application form which can be downloaded from here

Key target areas include native vegetation and native species management and monitoring, soil conservation and erosion control, water resource management, and pest plant and animal control as well as initiatives that support sustainable primary production.

Grant applications close on 27 May 2019.

The Community Engagement Officer for your district can provide support during the application process.
