Moylan announces Envirofund open for nominations MEDIA RELEASE Friday, 3 March 2006

If you have an idea for a natural resource management project why not apply for an Australian Government Envirofund grant.

Community groups and individuals across Pearce are invited to apply for grants of up to $50,000 through the scheme.

Commonly funded projects include planting native vegetation, fencing to protect habitat for native species and weeding at local reserves or beaches.

Member for Pearce Hon Judi Moylan MP explains: “Envirofund is aimed at projects which enhance and protect our natural habitat and include elements of natural resource management. It applies to public or private land.”

“The last Envirofund Round was a drought recovery round specifically targeted at people in Exceptional Circumstances.

“The latest Envirofund grants will focus on initiatives across Australia to benefit all aspects of the environment including tropical, coastal, marine and agricultural areas.”

Since it was launched in 2002, the Government has approved nearly 6000 community-based projects nation-wide and issued more than $90 million in funding.

Anyone wishing to apply for Round 8 of the $20 million Envirofund should visit www.nht.gov.au/envirofund for an application form, or phone 1800 065 823 for further information.

Applications close at 5pm on Friday 28 April, 2006.
