Queensland Indigenous Land and Sea Grant program
The latest round of the Queensland Indigenous Land and Sea Grant program is now closed. Under the program Indigenous communities can apply for grants up to $50,000 to support activities that build the capacity of communities to conserve and protect environmental and cultural resources. It achieves this through supporting on-ground management of environmental and cultural resources on Indigenous peoples’ lands across Queensland.
The types of activities previously funded through the program include:
- cultural heritage site management (recording, protection and training)
- protected species monitoring and conservation
- feral animal management (including fencing)
- fire management
- habitat restoration
- weed control.
Applications closed on 27 August 2014 and successful projects will be announced soon.
