The Goulburn Broken CMA is seeking Expressions of Interest (EOI) from community groups and organisations for natural resource management projects in the Goulburn Broken Catchment for 2005/06.

The Goulburn Broken CMA is seeking Expressions of Interest (EOI) from community groups and organisations for natural resource management projects in the Goulburn Broken Catchment for 2005/06.

 

Priority projects are based on the Goulburn Broken Regional Catchment Strategy. To help applicants, the CMA has produced a summary Priorities Document that shows the important issues and actions that need to be taken, as well as locations of priority sites.

 

The types of projects that may be funded include:

 

  • On ground works that will lead to sustainable use of our natural resources in agriculture
  • Pestplant and animal control
  • Innovative approaches to landscape change
  • Protection and enhancement of remnant vegetation and endangered species and
  • Community education, awareness and support projects.

 

Many types of environmental works in the Goulburn Broken region can already be funded through existing incentives such as Environmental Management Incentives and Waterway Incentives.

 

The EOI is a short two page form. On receiving the forms, the Goulburn Broken CMA will try and match priority projects to various funding sources available for funding in 2005-06.

 

Most environmental community and Landcare groups and organisations should receive an EOI form and other relevant information in the next few days.

 

If your group or organisation has not received an EOI form and wishes to participate, or you need more information please contact Fleur Jaques at the Goulburn Broken CMA on (03) 5822 2288. Information and the EOI Form is also available for downloading from the Goulburn Broken CMA website at www.gbcma.vic.gov.au.

 

EOI forms need to be returned by 5pm on Tuesday 30th November, 2004 to the CMA Shepparton office, Goulburn Broken CMA, PO Box 1752, Shepparton 3632 or emailed to fleurj@gbcma.vic.gov.au.
