Queensland Indigenous Land and Sea Grant program
The Queensland Indigenous Land and Sea Grant program provides Indigenous communities with grants of up to $100,000 to support projects that build their capacity to conserve environmental and cultural resources. The program supports on-ground environmental and cultural heritage projects on Indigenous peoples’ lands across Queensland, including those that contribute to the improved management and protection of the Great Barrier Reef.
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
- fire management
- erosion control
- habitat restoration
- weed control
- the development of plans (such as country or management plans) to improve the effectiveness of future on-ground environmental and cultural resource management effort.
Projects funded through the 2015 round are currently underway. Information about opportunity to apply under the 2016 round is expected to be available in mid-2016.
