Grants and funding
Weeds in Bushfire Recovery
Applications now open
The Weeds in Bushfire Recovery project provides on-ground incentives to private and public landholders in areas impacted by the 2019 - 2020 bushfires for the mitigation and control of weeds.
Landholders can apply for financial support for work involving both environmental weeds and/or weeds in production areas such as pastures.
All proposed works need to demonstrate a strategic or targeted approach that contributes to weed management and control in the longer term.
The Weeds in Bushfire Recovery project is being delivered by Central Tablelands Local Land Services through NSW Bushfire Recovery Funding.
Applications for Weeds in Bushfire Recovery funding open Monday 19 October 2020, and close 5.00pm Friday 6 November 2020.
Ground Cover - Confinement Feeding
Applications now closed
The ground cover incentive project will assist landholders to prevent degradation of natural resources by ensuring that adequate ground cover is maintained across their property during periods of drought and adverse seasonal conditions.
The project provides training and financial assistance to land managers to construct farm infrastructure (confinement feeding areas) that will improve grazing management and ground cover outcomes.
Confinement feeding areas are carefully selected spaces set up to hold, feed and water livestock at high stocking rates. These areas enable maintenance or improvement of ground cover levels and reduce environmental degradation.
Applications for ground cover incentives open Friday 7 August 2020, and close Friday 28 August 2020.
This project is provided by Central Tablelands Local Land Services across the region through funding from Catchment Action NSW.
Applications now closed
The Soil Erosion project will assist land managers to improve their management of gullies and erosion sites across the Central Tablelands Local Land Services region. On-ground incentives will be offered to landholders to improve their management of gullies to prevent further soil erosion.
The incentive will assist to reduce the impacts of sediment movement whilst improving management and ground cover within the immediate areas.
Applications for soil erosion incentives open Friday 7 August 2020, and close Friday 28 August 2020.
Stream Protection and Enhancement
EOIs now closed
The Stream Protection and Enhancement project assists private land managers to improve the condition and connectivity of streams in priority areas across the Central Tablelands.
On-ground incentives are available to landowners on named streams within the priority areas across the region. Projects linking to priority areas through existing native vegetation will also be considered for funding.
The Stream Protection and Enhancement project will provide incentive funding and technical support for the following on-ground activities:
- stock-proof fencing to control stock access to project areas
- alternative stock watering points where stock access to water will be lost due to new fencing
- targeted planting of native trees and shrubs to enhance stream protection
- a one off stewardship payment where stock are excluded from the project area
Expressions of Interest (EOIs) for stream protection and enhancement incentives open Friday 7 August 2020, and close Friday 28 August 2020.
