Grants and Funding

Northern Tablelands Local Land Services is committed to working with landholders and the community to invest in the long term sustainability of this region.

When we offer assistance and support to the community in the form of grants, we consider each grant project to be a partnership with Northern Tablelands Local Land Services.

Natural resource management projects

Northern Tablelands Local Land Services currently has funding available to develop natural resource management projects on-farm and we would like landholders to submit Expressions of Interest to help us identify and support their natural resource priorities.

Expressions of Interest will be assessed as they are received against a set of criteria including funding availability, landholder contribution, NSW and Australian Government priorities and value for money.

Please take the time to read through the Expression of Interest Guidelines for more information about eligibility and supported activities.

The process for submitting an Expression of Interest is as follows:

Step 1: Read the Expression of Interest Guidelines (PDF 1MB).

Step 2: Complete the online Expression of Interest Form

Alternatively, print and complete the Expression of Interest Form (PDF 59KB).

Step 3: Email the completed Application Form to us at eoi.northerntablelands@lls.nsw.gov.au or post it to PO Box 411, Inverell 2360 or drop it into any Northern Tablelands Local Land Services office (Inverell, Glen Innes, Armidale or Tenterfield).

Fencing Northern Basin Riverbanks in NSW Program

Landholders and community groups along the Macintyre, Dumaresq and reaches of the Severn River, could be eligible to receive funding under the Fencing Northern Riverbanks in NSW program, with expressions of interest now open.

The program will see a range of important works carried out that aim to improve water quality, sustain native fish populations and keep farm animals safe in the Northern Basin.

Expressions of Interest will be assessed as they are received against a set of criteria including priority target river reaches, and proximity to existing riparian fencing.

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.
