Grants and funding
Financial assistance is often available to support landscape management activities across the Northern and Yorke region. This may be through community grants programs or through project-based incentives.
On-Farm Dry Times Grant
The Northern and Yorke Landscape Board is offering Rangeland farmers small grants for infrastructure development projects that help manage the current dry times and increase preparedness for future drought conditions. Grants of up to $2,000 per farm are available to improve drought management efficiencies on farm and must be acquitted by 30 June 2024. Limited funds are available, so allocation is on a first-in basis until 12 April 2024, or until funds are depleted.
For more information, contact Kate Pearce, Team Leader - Rangelands via firstname.lastname@example.org or call 0429 151 138.
Bite-sized Grants program
Funding of between $200 and $1000 is available for community groups and not-for-profit organisations for small, short-term projects. The program is funded through the Northern and Yorke Landscape Board to deliver positive environmental and landscape management outcomes, such as weed control, revegetation projects and pest animal management. The 2023-2024 round of the Bite-sized Grants program is now open.
