The latest round of the Queensland Indigenous Land and Sea Grant program - Applications should be submitted online by Thursday 17 August 2017 at 5pm.
The Queensland Indigenous Land and Sea Grant program provides Indigenous communities with grants of up to $75,000 to support projects that build capacity to conserve environmental and cultural resources.
The program supports on-ground environmental and cultural heritage projects on Indigenous peoples’ lands that effectively build collaborative relationships and partnerships with key stakeholders and organisations.
Open now! Expressions of Interest (EOI) are sort from Rainforest Aboriginal People to get small and medium sized projects up and running across the region.
Projects must fall within the Wet Tropics World Heritage Area or the Wet Tropics NRM Region.
Round one EOI’s will be accepted from early March 2017 and close on the 31 March 2017. All EOI’s will be notified of the outcome by 30 April 2017. Successful applicants will need to sign a funding agreement with the Authority or Terrain.
These ‘Flood ready … flood safe’ factsheets are a helpful guide and information source to help landholders prepare for, and cope with, floods. They were developed by the Regional Groups Collective with funding from the Queensland Government.

This project contributes to improvement to water quality flowing into the Great Barrier Reef by enabling landholders on priority grazing properties in the Laura-Normanby catchments of Cape York to tackle high risk issues impacting water quality in the GBR Lagoon. This is achieved via delivery of a recipient run grants program delivered by Cape York Sustainable Futures through partnerships with Cape York NRM, industry, community, government agencies and research organisations.
