We are administering Round 2 of the Partnerships Against Pests Grants Program to improve the capacity of land managers to manage established weeds and pest animals on their land.
Generally, established weeds are those that are listed as regionally controlled or regionally prohibited under the Catchment and Land Protection Act 1994. Established pest animals generally include foxes, rabbits, feral pigs and wild dogs.
This grant aims to ensure that people most affected by the problem of established weeds and pest animals are central in the process of defining the problem and co-creating strategies and new community-based projects to build community capacity and support on-ground action.
Grant applications opened Wednesday 29 November 2023 and close at 9am on 19 February 2024.
A $500,000 funding pool for stream 2 will help community groups to deliver workshops, resources and community engagement initiatives, build community capacity, and promote collaboration between neighbours and communities.
