Grants and funding

Enhancing Remnant Vegetation Pilot

The Australian Government has announced Central West NSW is one of six regions in Australia where producers will be eligible to apply to take part in a trial to receive financial benefits for improving native vegetation on their properties.
The Enhancing Remnant Vegetation Pilot will be a scientifically robust, on-ground trial that aims to improve existing native vegetation on farms. It will test biodiversity protocols developed by the Australian National University.

Successful farmers would receive payments to manage and enhance significant remnant native vegetation on-farm. Examples include:

  • installing fencing
  • carrying out weeding
  • pest control
  • replanting.

Applications for the Enhancing Remnant Vegetation Pilot are now open and close on Wednesday, 27 October 2021.

EOIs extended for Fencing Northern Basin Riverbanks program

Round one expressions of interest for the fencing Northern Riverbanks in NSW program have been extended until Friday, 19 November 2021.

A highlight of the program will be the construction of 500 kilometres of riparian riverbank fencing to control livestock access to environmentally sensitive waterways, reducing degradation of these important sites.

We encourage landholders and community groups to head to the website or contact Dominic Nowlan to find out more information and see if they are eligible for funding.

The Fencing Northern Basin Riverbank program is part of a $15 million investment the Australian Government has committed to NSW and Queensland, with Local Land Services responsible for delivering $7.5 million.
