2022-23 Healthy Landscapes Incentives
Landholders in the Central West Local Land Services region are invited to apply for funding to undertake a variety of on-farm projects in 2022/23 (subject to eligibility). This funding will be rolled out under the Healthy Landscapes Incentive Funding program with the main goals of improving natural farm assets and improving overall ecological functioning across the Central West region.
Funding is available in targeted priority areas within the Central West Local Land Services region .
The program will target on-ground works to protect and improve waterways, threatened ecological communities and habitat for hollow dwelling species.
- The Riparian Restoration project aims to work with landholders and enhance riparian habitat along the Lachlan River and its tributaries within the Central West Local Land service region.
- The Improved Ecological Communities project will work to restore and conserve areas of critically endangered Box Gum Grassy Woodland and Fuzzy Box Woodlands near Dubbo, Narromine, Wellington, Tomingley, Forbes and Grenfell.
- The Woodland Hollows project seeks to improve woodland habitat for a variety of threatened hollow-dwelling species within key Barking Owl habitat and to protect important stands of old growth trees and targets landholders around Breelong National Park and Goonoo State Forest.
- The Reaching out to the Regent Honeyeater project aims to increase community awareness about the species, monitor areas of known and potential habitat and carry out on ground works to preserve and restore habitat and corridors in priority areas.
- The Securing the Swift Parrot project aims to increase community awareness about the species, monitor areas of known and potential habitat and carry out on ground works to preserve and restore habitat and corridors in priority areas.
- The Making Inland Glossies Great Again project aims to protect this threatened species; Central Inland NSW is home to a significant, distinctive but declining Glossy Black-Cockatoo population concentrated in forest and woodland areas stretching from Parkes to Narrabri.
