Communities for Nature Grants
Communities for Nature small grants 2012 recipients
The Minister for Environment and Climate Change Ryan Smith recently announced the 80 groups receiving funding of up to $10,000 each, totalling up to $700,000, for small projects focusing on practical actions to achieve environmental outcomes in their local areas.
More than 260 applications were received for this round of small grants, and the high quality of those applications reflects the significant environmental works being carried out by community groups throughout Victoria.
Grants are targeted towards local community groups and organisations, including schools.
The Communities for Nature grants program supports:
- Practical community action to deliver measurable environmental outcomes
- Community groups and volunteers doing works primarily focused on the environment.
- Communities with relevant and timely information to assess priorities at the local level to determine the best returns for on-ground works.
Successful projects will address local environmental issues such as:
- Biodiversity and habitat preservation (preservation of areas known for their biodiversity and habitat values)
- Threatened species recovery
- Sustainable management of native wildlife
- Revegetation (of areas that enhance existing habitat or connectivity)
- Cleaning up waterways (creeks, wetlands, streams, rivers and seas)
- Control of weeds and pest animals
