Queensland Indigenous Land and Sea Grant program

Controlled burning of country

Controlled burning of country.

The Queensland Indigenous Land and Sea Grant program provides Indigenous communities with grants of up to $75,000 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 that effectively build collaborative relationships and partnerships with key stakeholders and organisations.

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 and implementation of country management plans.

Projects funded through the 2017-18 round have been announced with eight Traditional Owner led projects benefiting from grants this year.

It is anticipated that applications for the 2018-19 funding round will be invited in July 2018. 

If you have questions about the grant program please contact the grants officer on (07) 3330 5553 or email
