Smart Farm Small Grants Close 11 Jan 2019

Smart Farms Small Grants ($55 million) range from a minimum of $5,000 to a maximum of $200,000 (GST exclusive). Organisations and individuals may apply for funding for projects that promote and deliver land manager adoption of best practice sustainable land management. Applicants may also apply for projects that strengthen the capacity of Landcare groups and others to improve land manager adoption of best practice. Projects may be delivered locally, regionally and multi-regionally. Projects will fall into one of four categories, based on their value and the outcomes they are focussed on achieving. This will deliver more sustainable, productive and profitable agriculture, fishing, aquaculture and forestry industries, protect and improve the condition of natural resources (in particular soils and vegetation), and assist in protecting Australia’s biodiversity.

More information about the Smart Farms Small Grants including application forms here. If you want to know what was funded in round 1, download the list here. If you want help from Southern New England Landcare to apply, please download our Grant Writing Guidelines here, and our suggested Program Logic Templated here.

Tackling Tough Times Together Grants Close 5 Feb 2019

rawpixel com 570908 unsplashThe Tackling Tough Times Together grant program helps communities access the resources they need to support one another through the ongoing effects of the drought.

This program is designed to provide flexible funding to support community-based activities that both help to relieve current stressors and symptoms, and most importantly, build capacity and resilience for the future. Funds could also support activities that engage your local community in being proactive, exploring options and creating something that will stand the test of tough times. See the case studiesbelow for examples of the types of projects we have funded in the past, which may provide some ideas.

Thanks to the generous support of donor partners, grants of up to $20,000 are now available across drought-affected communities nationally. A smaller number of grants valued at up to $60,000 and $150,000 are also available for larger-scale and multi-year projects that have a broader impact. Applications will be accepted on an ongoing basis and assessed quarterly.

More information on these grants can be found here.

If you want help from Southern New England Landcare to apply, please download our Grant Writing Guidelines here, and our suggested Program Logic Templated here.
