Community groups and councils can now apply for the NSW government’s 2018 Restoration and Rehabilitation Grant Program. 

Goulburn MP Pru Goward said the funding would support grassroots environmental projects that restored, protected and enhanced a variety of NSW ecosystems and care for habitats for rare and endangered plants and animals.

“Community groups, not-for-profit and government entities from across the state are encouraged to apply for a grant between $5,000 and $100,000,” she said.

The program has been running for more than 20 years and is one of the longest running in Australia. 

It has helped landholders, local councils, government agencies and community groups restore habitats for native and endangered species, improve water quality and rehabilitate wetland areas.
