Funding available for resilience building ag projects
Funding is now available to local agriculture groups implementing projects to build resilience and adapt to climate change.
Limestone Coast Landscape Board Adaptive Agriculture Senior Project Officer Amanda Giles said applications for Adaptive Agriculture Grants are now open, and funding will be awarded to projects encouraging uptake of best practice agriculture.
“Funded projects should help local landholders in adapting to our variable climatic conditions in the Limestone Coast,” Amanda said.
“Projects could include hosting events or webinars, conducting field trials, demonstrations of innovative technology, and producing communications could be eligible for funding.”
Applications for once off grants between $2,500 and $7,000 are encouraged, and applications for up to $30,000 will be eligible.
“Grants are open to a range of organisations, farming systems groups, ag bureaus, non-government and not for profit groups,” Amanda said.
“Past projects have helped local landholders and businesses build resilience in a changing climate and have investigated topics such as alternative pasture varieties, livestock water security, and innovative monitoring methods.”
“We’re excited to be supporting local people and are looking forward to seeing what ideas are brought to life by this round of grants.”
Applications close Monday 24 August 2020.
