People can apply from today on the Community Grants Hub. These grants are for organisations, farmer groups and individuals who can deliver innovative NRM approaches to build drought resilience on agricultural landscapes. Successful applicants will receive between $20,000 and $200,000.
Through holistic management and adoption of new or existing technology and practices, this program will deliver a range of on-ground outcomes achieving benefits tailored to meet local priorities and contribute to landscape-scale drought resilience.
For example, projects which regenerate and maintain groundcover can deliver drought resilience by improving the soil’s water infiltration and storage capacity—reducing run-off and associated water erosion.
