Funding now available for natural resource management projects

Funding for projects to enhance and protect natural resources is now available following Central West Local Land Services launching their 2019-20 Catchment Action Incentive funding round.

Landholders in priority areas across the Central West are invited to submit Expressions of Interest for soil and land rehabilitation projects.

Central West Local Land Services Acting Team Leader Natural Resource Management Kyra Roach said improving soil condition and health was a win-win for farmers and the environment.

“Healthy soil and reduced erosion is better for farmers and better for our natural environment,” Ms Roach said.

“Funding is available for projects such as restricting access to water points and projects to manage on-farm and in-stream erosion through earth works or other activities.

"As part of the incentive program we will be holding a series of erosion control workshops which landholders will need to attend to be eligible for erosion control project funding."

Central West Local Land Services will work with interested landholders through the application process and offer technical support, Ms Roach said.

“We can assist landholders with understanding which native plant species to use in site rehabilitation and providing advice for restricting water point access.”

Funding is also available for a number of priority projects such as riparian restoration and threatened species habitat restoration in selected areas across the Central West as part of the Catchment Action Program.

Expressions of Interest to undertake projects are open until Monday, 21 October 2019.

Further information including priority area maps and expression of interest applications are available from the Incentive Funding page or by phone 1300 795 299.
