Natural Disaster Environmental Recovery Project Grant Guidelines and Application 2011
The North Central Catchment Management Authority (CMA) has received funding from the AustralianGovernment for a Natural Disaster Environmental Recovery program to support the community to undertake environmental flood recovery works.
This funding has been provided for projects that:
1) Repair damage from the recent floods to previous environmental protection works such as revegetation or fencing
2) Protect or enhance environmental benefits from the floods such as natural regeneration.
The aim of the program is to support the community through Landcare and other groups to repair damage to sites of previous government investment programs, such as Envirofund, and to enhance current programs funded under the Caring for Our Country (CfoC) business plan. Throughout the region the floods will have affected communities to varying degrees. This program recognises that communities will have varying levels of capacity to deliver works and aims to support communities according to their needs. Inline with Caring for Our Country aims and the Australian Government’s commitments to the environment the target area for works that are to enhance the environmental benefits from the floods should target the critically endangered White Box, Yellow Box, Blakely’s Red Gum Grassy Woodlands. Proposals that correspond with the target area will be given a higher priority than proposals that do not.
