News article |

Applications are now open for the South East Natural Resources Management Board’s ‘Agricultural Industries Adapting to Variable Climates and Markets’ grants program.

Natural Resources South East Sustainable Agriculture and Climate Change Senior Project Officer Nicola Turner said the grants will support local projects aimed at supporting local industry.

“The funding will be awarded to projects that encourage uptake of best practice agriculture in a changing climate,” said Nicola.

“Projects could include things like hosting an event, conducting field trials or demonstrations of innovative technologies, or producing communication tools.”

The once off $15,000 grants are open to groups operating within the South East, and require projects to be completed by 20 June 2019.

“The grants are open to a range of organisations such as farming systems groups, agriculture bureaus, local action planning groups, and non-government or not for profit groups working to improve agriculture.”

“We’re looking to support projects that focus on developing knowledge, and building the capacity of landholders to be resilient and adapt to climate variation.”

“It’s important to support locals to ensure longevity and profitability in agriculture now and for future generations.”

This project is supported by the Australian Government’s Regional Land Partnerships initiative of the National Landcare Program and the South East Natural Resources Management Board.
