Want to host a community clean up day? Maybe a tree planting event in your area or perhaps you need funding to get your community newsletter up and running?
Well this a community grant you don’t want to miss out on!
Delivered through the Peel-Harvey Catchment Council, the Small Local Action Grants are now open and offering funding of up to $1000 for environmental projects.
The inaugural grants are available to environmental community groups and individuals, land managers and landcare groups in the Peel-Harvey region with projects or activities aimed at supporting and enhancing the natural environment.
PHCC Chairman Andy Gulliver said the funding would enable more community environmental groups and individuals to continue protecting our valuable natural resources.
“We are really pleased to be able to provide these small, but important, grant opportunities to our community,” he said.
“We recognise the fabulous job our community do in protecting the local environment, and that sometimes small contributions can make a big difference.”
Federal Member for Canning, Mr Andrew Hastie echoed these comments and encouraged community groups and individuals to apply for the valuable funding.
“The PHCC Local Action Grants are a great opportunity for our community to put their hand up for financial help to make their environmental project a reality,” Mr Hastie said.
“In the Peel-Harvey area we have some incredible natural assets that need protecting and funding through this program can make a real difference.”
The Small Local Action Grants program will be open until June 2017, or until all funding has been allocated.
This project is supported by the Peel-Harvey Catchment Council, through funding from the Australian Government’s National Landcare Program.
