The Tasmanian Government has opened applications for its new Weed Action Fund. This is a $5M program to be rolled out over the next 5 years.
Stage 1 of the program is for small grants of $1,000 – $5,000. Projects need to be able to be completed within 12 months. $140,000 is available in this small grants round.
You can find the guidelines, priority weed lists and application forms HERE.
Recognised primary producers, groups (e.g. Landcare groups) and organisations are eligible to apply. Individual landowners whose properties are not involved in primary production are not eligible.
Note that larger grants are expected to open for applications late this year.
APPLICATIONS CLOSE WEDNESDAY 31 JULY
