The Australian Government is seeking applications from eligible groups or individuals interested in undertaking a tree planting project as part of the 20 Million Trees Program. Applications are invited for projects seeking funding between $20,000 and $100,000 (GST exclusive) link. Before you dismiss this as an opportunity on the VVP, it does apply to Grassy Eucalypt Woodland of the Victorian Volcanic Plain and some threatened species.
Trees and shrubs with a potential height of at least 2 metres when mature will count towards the 20 million tree target. Understorey species will also be considered for funding to ensure that locally appropriate vegetation structures are achieved.
Round Three of the Program will only fund Projects that directly benefit Threatened Species and/or Threatened Ecological Communities listed under the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999 (Cth) (EPBC Act). Fencing materials and seed collecting are eligible for funding. Read the guidelines. Closes Tuesday 15 August 2017.
