Grants of up to $60,000 over three years are now available to organisations providing on-ground events, activities and capacity building within the Middle Canning Estuary. Applications close Wednesday, 16 September, 2020.

Groups operating within the Middle Canning Estuary (or its tributaries) can apply for grants of up to $60,000 (capped at $20,000 per year) for environmental activities and outcomes. The Swan Canning River Recovery Steering Committee has identified the following activities as high priorities to be favoured in the selection process.

  • Restoring and revegetating habitat (planting native seedlings)
  • Seed collection
  • Invasive species control and priority weed management
  • Controlling and managing site access (i.e.) fencing
  • Pest animal control
  • Erosion management
  • Dieback and/or disease control and management
  • Installation of habitat features (i.e.) bat and bird boxes
  • Community capacity building events and workshops
  • Environmental education and promotion events
  • Debris management

The Direct Community Action Grants – Small Open Stream provides grants of up to $5,000 and is designed to enable community groups to apply for small one-off project tasks to complete short term inexpensive environmental outcomes or to quickly address environmental concerns as they arise in a time sensitive fashion.

Applications for the Small Open Stream can be made at any time while funds are still available.
