Grants and funding
We fund landholders, groups, organisations and individuals to improve their enterprise and local environment by better managing our natural resources.
KLR Marketing School Training Grants — apply now!
Landholders planning to attend the KLR Marketing School in Broken Hill on 11, 12 and 13 August 2020 have an opportunity to receive a 50 per cent subsidy of their registration costs.
Successful applicants will need to submit proof of registration and an invoice for 50 per cent of registration costs to Western Local Land Services to be reimbursed.
Please note: there is limited funding available. Subsidies will be funded based on date of submission and eligibility rather than competitively assessed. Landholders planning to apply are encouraged to do so as early as possible.
Prior to applying, landholders are asked to read the grant guidelines and eligibility:
EOIs will close on 31 July or when available funds are exhausted (whichever comes first). Click here for further information on the KLR Marketing School. For further information contact Senior Field Officer Claudia Bryant on 0448 796 109 or email.
Western Weed Management Program
Thanks to the landholders who expressed an interest in participating in the Western Weed Management Program.
Expressions of interest closed on Friday 29 May. Project officers are now working with landholders who applied to develop their program proposals.
For further information on the program, contact your local project officer or the Regional Program Coordinator, Brian Dohnt on 0455 901 258 or email.
The program will compliment the Western Regional Strategic Weed Management Plan 2017-2022 which identifies and categorises weed risks in the Western region.
Some of the activities eligible for funding are:
- labour and machinery — includes landholders' own labour or employees, plant and equipment, however, all are costed at a static rate.
- contractor — includes labour, plant or equipment but is limited to a static rate.
- chemical — if chemical is being used for weed control this must be included in the budget costings. Diesel mixed with chemical for application should also be budgeted.
- other — costs associated with other products that align with a best practice, integrated control program.
Funding for this program has been provided through the Australian Government's National Landcare Program and Catchment Action NSW.
Aboriginal cultural heritage projects guide
As a part of any project, Western Local Land Services must ensure that landholders participating in a project are aware of their responsibilities.
The below two-page resource gives landholders an overview of what is involved in assessing for Aboriginal cultural heritage values, what role our staff play, what will be included in the process and what is not included.
