The NSW Environmental Trust has announced a new contestable grants program called River Connections.
To assist community and government organisations to contribute to new approaches to integrated river management that can deliver improved health outcomes for inland rivers at a landscape scale in NSW.
River Connections will co-fund large scale, long-term collaboration and partnerships to tackle river and aquatic degradation at the landscape scale. Projects will investigate and analyse the barriers, threats and opportunities to integrated river management, identify and include diverse user values and trial new innovative approaches and/or techniques to river management that can deliver improved river health outcomes.
$10 million over 11 years contestable grants program that will provide grants to consortiums. It is expected the funding will value add to existing activities and significantly leverage existing co-contributions. To maximise the impact and longevity of the program, it is expected only one or two large scale projects, at landscape scale will be funded.
A regional workshop is being conducted in Dubbo on Wednesday 21 November 2018 to provide program information to potential applicants as well as an opportunity for networking of ideas. For information regarding this workshop please click HERE
