Grants are available through the following projects:
Carbon + Biodiversity Pilot - round 2 now open
The Australian Government is running the Carbon + Biodiversity Pilot in our region. The Pilot is a key part of the Australian Government’s $66.1 million Agriculture Biodiversity Stewardship Package and will reward farmers for the stewardship of their land, storing carbon and improving Australia’s biodiversity.
Guidelines, planting protocols and other information on the Carbon + Biodiversity Pilot are available from the Department of Agriculture, Water and the Environment website. It is strongly recommended that applicants seek independent professional advice about participation in this pilot, potentially including financial, legal, agronomy and carbon project specialists (funding to support this will be provided to successful applicants).
We are the local NRM partner helping the government to implement the pilot in our region, helping to ensure it works for our landholders. Reach out for assistance with your application. Applications are open from Thursday 16 December 2021 until Thursday 3 March 2022.
