Written on the 26 August 2015 by Kevin ConollyKevin Conolly MP, Member for Riverstone is urging local community organisations and Blacktown City Council to apply for a share in the NSW Government's $5.3 million Restoration and Rehabilitation Grants Program.
The Grants Program aims to help community organisations, local councils and other groups run projects to prevent or reduce environmental degradation at a local level.
"The grants program is a grass roots program which aims to restore degraded environmental resources, including rare and endangered ecosystems, protect important ecosystems and habitats of rare and endangered flora and fauna, and prevent or minimise future environmental damage." said Mr Conolly.
"There is an amount of $2 million available to community and not for profit organisations, $2 million for government entities and a further $1.3 million is available for owners and managers of NSW State Heritage Register listed properties."
Applications for grants of $5,000 to $100,000 close on Friday, 18 September 2015. Grants are available for projects where work is carried out over a period of up to three years.
