Environmental Restoration and Rehabilitation Grants
The Restoration and Rehabilitation grants program is currently closed to applications. The next round is anticipated to occur in September 2017.
The Restoration and Rehabilitation Program is a contestable grants program seeking to achieve long-term beneficial outcomes for the NSW environment..
Funded by the NSW Environmental Trust, the program encourages and enables community and government organisations to protect, conserve and restore our valuable natural environment.
Aim of the program
The aim of the Restoration and Rehabilitation Program is to facilitate projects run by community organisations and government entities working to prevent or reduce environmental degradation of any kind. Through these projects, we also aim to improve the capacity of communities and organisations to protect, restore and enhance the environment.
The objectives of the Restoration and Rehabilitation program are:
- to restore degraded environmental resources, including rare and endangered ecosystems
- to protect important ecosystems and habitats of rare and endangered flora and fauna
- to prevent or minimise future environmental damage
- to enhance the quality of specific environmental resources
- to improve the capacity of eligible organisations to protect, restore and enhance the environment
- to prevent or reduce pollution.
A total of $4 million was available under the 2016-17 round of the Restoration and Rehabilitation grants program. This includes:
- $2 million for projects by community organisations
- $2 million for projects by government entities.
Grants of between $5000 and $100,000 were available.
