Community Action Grants

Date: 
1 Aug 2011 - 5:00pm

Community Action Grants are a small grants component of the Australian Government's Caring for our Country initiative that aims to help local community groups take action to conserve and protect their natural environment. The grants are targeted towards established local community-based organisations that are successfully delivering projects to support sustainable farming and/or protect and enhance the natural environment.

Investment proposals are sought from environmental, Indigenous, Landcare, Coastcare and sustainable agriculture community groups for grants of between $5000 and $20 000 (GST exclusive) to take action to help protect and conserve Australia's natural resources and environment. Projects must be completed within 18 months or less.

Up to $5 million is available for the 2011-12 round.

The grants are available to groups currently operating in the environmental and sustainable land management arena, as well as to established and emerging Indigenous organisations. Individuals are not eligible to apply for Community Action Grants.

Community Action Grants support local activities such as tree planting, revegetation, dune rehabilitation, field days, improving land management practices and the recording and use of traditional ecological knowledge.

Applications for the 2011-12 Community Action Grants will close Monday 1 August 2011.
