Queensland Indigenous Land and Sea Grant program
The latest round of the Queensland Indigenous Land and Sea Grant program is now open. Applications are invited from Indigenous communities for grants up to $75,000 to support projects that build their capacity to conserve and protect environmental and cultural resources. The program supports on-ground environmental and cultural heritage projects on Indigenous peoples’ lands across Queensland that effectively build collaborative relationships and partnerships with key stakeholders and organisations.
The types of activities funded through the program include (but are not limited to):
- cultural heritage site management (recording, protection and training)
- protected species monitoring and conservation
- feral animal management (including fencing)
- fire management
- erosion control
- habitat restoration
- weed control
- planning and management documents (such as country or management plans) aimed at improving the effectiveness of future on-ground management of environmental and cultural resources.
For more information about the terms and conditions of the program and about the application process please read the guidelines (PDF, 213KB).
Applications close on Thursday 11 August 2016 at 5pm and should be submitted online.
