Queensland Indigenous Land and Sea Grant program
The latest round of the Queensland Indigenous Land and Sea Grant program is now open. 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 close on 27 August 2014 at 5pm and it is anticipated that successful projects will be announced in October 2014.
For more information about terms and conditions or the application process, please read the Guidelines.
To apply please submit your proposal online.
If you are not able to submit your application online, or would like to discuss your project, please contact the program officer on (07) 4222 5524 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Groups that already have established land and sea ranger groups with ongoing funding (through a state or federal government ranger program) will not be eligible to apply for funding through this program.
