Funding Opportunity: Fencing and Revegetation of Foreshore Areas
Register Your Interest Now!
PHCC is offering grants to landholders to fence streamlines on their properties to control access of livestock. Deterring stock from entering streams, in combination with revegetating along streamlines will reduce the amount of nutrients, organic material and sediment (from erosion) entering the drainage network which eventually flows to the Peel-Harvey Estuary.
The grants are funded through the Healthy Estuaries WA Program, which builds on the earlier work of the Regional Estuaries Initiative to drive action in our catchments to improve water quality in the estuary.
To be eligible for a grant, your property must lie within the Healthy Estuaries WA footprint (https://peel-harvey.org.au/wp-content/uploads/2021/06/HEWA-Peel-Harvey-Boundary-1-scaled.jpeg) be currently or in the immediate future be used for grazing, and contain a drain, stream, creek or tother waterway that connects to the drainage network for the Peel-Harvey Estuary.. Landowners must also contribute 50% of the total cost of the project through either cash or in-kind contributions for example, installation of fencing or completion of revegetation.
