We wish to thank everyone who recently submitted an application to round 8 of Naturally Inspired Grants. We’re very pleased to see such a high standard of applications totalling 54 applications from landholders and community groups across the Southern Tasmania NRM Region.
There are a lot of exciting projects proposed, vying for a share in over $130,000 of funding.
The applications are currently undergoing an internal NRM South technical review to ensure they meet minimum requirements for the grant priorities and criteria. The applications will then be reviewed by an external panel of NRM professionals, who will rank each project against set criteria.
Given the significant interest in these grants and limitation of funding available, it is important for applicants to understand that not all the projects that meet the criteria will receive funding. NRM South nonetheless recognises that all this type of work being undertaken in the region is valuable.
The Naturally Inspired Grants support a diverse range of activities and outcomes, including native plant revegetation, rehabilitating sensitive habitat, weed control or management, controlling invasive species, developing awareness raising tools, adopting innovative land use practices, and many more.
Applicants will be advised of the outcome of their grant application by 17 April, 2015.
