Rivers, plains, mountains and forests make our region diverse. Key activities are cereal production, especially rice, dairy, fruit, vegetable and wool production.
Applications are invited from community groups and organisations working in sustainable land management for amounts of up to $10,000. (Individual land managers may also apply but preference will be given to applications from groups). There are two funding streams that groups may apply to - grants for Aboriginal groups and organisations & grants for community groups and organisations, including Local Government, Landcare, Producer groups and other special interest groups. Grants are focused on sustainable land management, building organisational capacity and Connection to Country. Application forms and more at the link above
The rates you pay to Local Land Services allow your local region to fund the services it provides to landholders and contribute to other important statewide functions.
