Environmental grant opens
A $4 million grant pool for vital environmental projects has been opened for groups like schools, not-for-profit organisations, local government and environmental action groups.
Agriculture and Food Minister Dean Nalder said groups could apply for between $5000 and $55,000 funding through the Natural Resource Management grants program for the 201617 Community Action Grants.
In addition, $100,000 is available in the 2016-17 Community Capability Grant round for small projects between $1000 and $10,000 which can be implemented over the next 12 months. Mr Nalder said more than 200 groups and organisations throughout WA had already achieved results through the program.
