Protecting our Places grants

Call for applications

The Protecting our Places program is now open for applications. Applications close 5pm on 30 May 2014.

The aim of the Protecting our Places program is to protect land that is culturally significant to Aboriginal people and to support education projects about the environment and its importance in Aboriginal life.


The objectives of the Protecting our Places program are:

  • to restore or rehabilitate Aboriginal land or land that is culturally significant to Aboriginal people
  • to educate Aboriginal and other communities about the local environment and the value Aboriginal communities place on their natural environment.


Face-to-face workshops will be held across NSW between March and May 2014, as well as a series of webinars (online seminars combined with teleconferencing). You can register online to attend either a workshop or webinar session. For more information, please see the 2014 Workshops web page.
