Multiple cherries for landholders to have a bite at to receive funding assistance
20 September 2019
Western Local Land Services is offering landholders a wonderful opportunity to receive funding assistance to carry out works that will help to increase the productivity of their property and be beneficial to the environment and landscape.
The funding opportunities, which focus on rangeland rehabilitation and the Ecosystem Management Understanding (EMU) process, both opened this week, with landholders who are based in the Western Local Land Services region and fit the outlined criteria, encouraged to apply.
Opportunity one – rangeland rehabilitation
The rangeland rehabilitation program has a priority area within the Western region which is the Coolibah-Black Box Woodlands (CBB Woodland) endangered ecological community. Successful applicants in this program will carry out land management works that will improve the CBB Woodland. A map of the Woodland (the priority area) is included in the guidelines.
Opportunity two – Ecosystem Management Understanding
EMU participants will be shown how to understand landscape processes, conditions and trends with on-ground projects developed that address ecological sustainability and agricultural productivity. The EMU program does not have a priority area however all applicants must be based within the Western Local Land Services region (see guidelines).
Landholders interested in participating in the rangeland rehabilitation program and/or the EMU program are asked to read the guidelines prior to submitting their application.
- rangeland rehabilitation guidelines
- rangeland rehabilitation application form
- EMU guidelines and application form.
Applications for both programs must be submitted by 5 pm Friday, 4 October.
If landholders want further information about the programs they should contact Rangeland Rehabilitation Officer, Paul Theakston on 0428 259 231.
Both these programs are supported by Western Local Land Services through funding from the Australian Government’s National Landcare Program.
