The Naturally Inspired Grants provide valuable support for groups and individuals to make a positive contribution to the Southern Tasmanian environment.
Since 2009, the Naturally Inspired Grants have provided community groups with over $335,000 in funding, which has also included support provided through the new rolling Naturally Inspired Bite-sized grants.
This year priorities include projects that:
- Increase engagement, participation and capacity building in NRM;
- Include on ground works to protect national and state listed species, communities and places; or
- Encourage farmers and fishers to adopt sustainable initiatives.
These priorities align with the Australian Government’s National Landcare Programme.
Round 8 (announced June 2015) provides grants to groups, non profits and schools and to individual landholders for projects on sustainable production or biodiversity on private land, by merging former on-farm action grants with the existing Naturally Inspired Grants program. This grant is supported through Australian Government funding and the National Landcare Programme.
