Time running out to register your interest in weeds funding
06 October 2017
Landholders and community groups are being reminded they only have until Friday, 13 October to apply for funding to undertake weed control works on land located within the Western Local Land Services region.
The Western Weed Management program, which seeks to improve and sustain the condition of natural resources by implementing control measures for weeds, represents a great opportunity for people in the Western region who are serious about bringing about positive change on their properties and local environments.
Western Local Land Services Senior Land Services Officer, Brian Dohnt is hoping to see a surge in expressions of interest in the final week from people that want to take part in this program.
“We expect this funding will provide the opportunity for some great projects to be carried out that will bring about positive change in the Western region,” Mr Dohnt said.
“So far we have had strong interest in the program but as the deadline nears we are really pushing all landholders and community groups to finalise their expressions of interest and submit those.”
The Western Weed Management program will complement the Western Regional Strategic Weed Management Plan 2017 – 2022 with a listing of applicable weed threats to this funding program.
Those interested in applying are encouraged to read over the guidelines and conditions prior to submitting an expression of interest (EOI).
Download the EOI form and the guidelines, as well as the Western Regional Strategic Weed Management Plan.
Alternatively, landholders can contact their nearest Western Local Land Services office and request this information.
EOIs must be submitted by close of business on Friday, 13 October 2017.
Funding for this program is through the National Landcare Programme and Catchment Action NSW.
