Spiny Pimelea funding for projects

This is an invitation to apply for funding via a project which will benefit Spiny Rice-flower (Pimelea spinescens subsp. spinescens) in 2015.

The funding has been made available through an allocation from the Pimelea Conservation Trust Fund which has been established from a Conservation Agreement. The Pimelea Conservation Trust Committee (PCT Committee) through meetings will administer the funds annually. The application form contains all the details regarding how to apply for the 2015 funding allocation. All applications should directly relate the project to the objectives and corresponding actions of the published Pimelea spinescens Recovery Plan.

The applicants will need to detail which Recovery Plan objective/s and actions they are addressing, how they will be implemented, identify the risks of the project and measurable outcome/s/benefits for P. spinescens.

Generally, the total amount available each year is $12,000. However, this amount may vary at the Trust Committee’s discretion. A project’s time frame will be dependent on the project.

Applications will be open from December 5th until 31st January each year. Successful applicants will be selected from applications by the PCT Committee during February. All applicants will be informed of the outcome in February via email (the successful applicant/s will receive a formal letter).  Here is the application form pimelea-conservation-trust-fund-application.docx
