Eligible Project Grants


Grant applications are open for projects that align with one or both of the below priority areas:

Conservation fencing and exclusion
Installing electric conservation fencing can help exclude threats to valuable native plants and animals, such as: Browsing or trampling by herbivores (such as stock, rabbits or kangaroos); preventing damage from people; keeping out introduced pests.

Farm dam restoration
Restoring degraded farm dams into ecological assets by excluding or restricting livestock access can have significant benefits, including livestock health, improved drought resilience, water quality, biodiversity and ecological benefits by allowing native vegetation to establish and regenerate, reducing sedimentation and acting as a natural filter.
