Hot off the press: Time to put your grant pants on Riverina
The Community Landcare ‘Pop-up’ Grants Program coordinated by Murrumbidgee Landcare Inc. aims to support Landcare and community groups in the Riverina Local Land Services area to promote community-driven natural resource management. Groups are invited to apply for a grant of up to $2,000 (GST exclusive) to undertake projects and activities that encourage the involvement of community groups in understanding, protecting and enhancing the natural environment. A total of $25,000, on a competitive basis, is available each year for three years (2016/17, 2017/18 and 2018/19).
