In 2016, the Minister for the Environment announced a $5 million Threatened Species Recovery Fund to support communities to actively protect Threatened Species, leverage additional investment, and assist with delivering on the Targets and Action Areas in the Australian Government’s Threatened Species Strategy. The Recovery Fund sits within the National Landcare Programme and delivers tangible benefits for Australia’s Threatened Species, as well as helping to grow community involvement in their recovery.
Grant funding from $20,000 to $250,000 is available for eligible individuals, community groups and government organisations.
The Competitive Round of the Fund opened for Applications on 5 May 2017 and closes on 15 June 2017 (2pm AEST).
