Grants and funding

We fund landholders, groups, organisations and individuals to improve their enterprise and local environment by better managing our natural resources.

Western Weed Management Program — calling for participants

Landholders have a great opportunity to receive funding to improve and sustain the condition of natural resources by implementing control measures for weeds through the next round of the Western Weed Management Program.

The program, which will compliment the Western Regional Strategic Weed Management Plan 2017-2022 which identifies and categorises weed risks in the Western region, is now open and landholders are encouraged to express their interest.

Eligible activities and expenses 

Some of the activities that landholders can receive funding for include:

  • labour and machinery — includes landholders' own labour or employees, plant and equipment, however, all are costed at a static rate.
  • contractor — includes labour, plant or equipment but is limited to a static rate.
  • chemical — if chemical is being used for weed control this must be included in the budget costings. Diesel mixed with chemical for application should also be budgeted.
  • other — costs associated with other products that align with a best practice, integrated control program.
