Grants and funding opportunities

Murray Local Land Services periodically administers grants and funding to individuals and community groups to enable them to attend training or carry out activities that will improve their skills, implement beneficial practices or enhance the local environment. The details of these opportunities, including how to apply, are listed on this page when available.

Bringing plains-wanderers back from the brink

Incentives are available for landholders to help preserve the critically endangered plains-wanderer and its grassland habitat.

The plains-wanderer is the only surviving species in the family Pedionomidae, and the grasslands of the Riverina Plains, between Jerilderie, Hay and Griffith, are one the last areas in Australia where they are found.

Incentives are available for pest and weed control, fencing, water points, saltbush plantations and stock management areas, as well as feeding infrastructure,  to assist landholders with livestock management and plains-wander conservation.
