CLEAN COASTAL CATCHMENTS ON-FARM GRANTS PROGRAM
Funding is available for Blueberry, blackberry, raspberry and greenhouse vegetable growers on the NSW North Coast to make their operations more productive, profitable and environmentally sustainable.
Louise Orr, General Manager North Coast Local Land Services said grants of up to $10,000 are available and has urged local farmers to make the most of this opportunity.
“These grants will assist growers in implementing on-ground works to keep sediment and nutrients on farm and out of our coastal waterways,” Ms Orr said.
“The North Coast is home to a flourishing agriculture industry and this funding will go a long way to supporting both profitable and sustainable agriculture in the region.”
As part of the Clean Coastal Catchments (CCC) project, growers interested in accessing grants of up to $10,000 are invited to complete an Expression of Interest (EOIs) form.
The CCC project is funded under the NSW Government’s Marine Estates Management Strategy. The ten-year Strategy was developed by the NSW Marine Estate Management Authority to coordinate the management of the marine estate.
Applications are now open for blueberry, blackberry, raspberry and greenhouse vegetable growers within the North Coast region.
“Through this program, Local Land Services staff will work with growers who have an interest in implementing best management practices, such as improving irrigation outcomes and reducing sediment run off,” Mr Orr said.
Funding for these works is for a limited time and it is anticipated that the on-ground works are completed within the next 12 months.
Expressions of interest are open now and submissions close on the 21st December.
