Community based environmental groups have until 28 September to apply for grants to rehabilitate their local environment. The Newman Government will provide $12 million over the next three years for community groups to tackle local conservation issues. Second and third rounds of the grants will be made available in 2013 and 2014. Individual grants between $2,000 and $100,000 are available for projects like tree-planting and restoring land, water quality improvement, land and waterway clean-ups, and monitoring pollutants in streams. Further information, guidelines and application forms for the Everyone’s Environment grants are available at www.ehp.qld.gov.au.
