These grants are ongoing!
Greater Sydney Local Land Services has opened a mini-grants program, grants for up to $1500 for educational events and resources.
Any community group can apply so long as the event or resource focuses on:
Coast and land management
Protection of waterways
Pest animal control
Preparing and responding to emergencies like flood, fire and drought.
The first round of grants will be assessed mid to late January, with completion required by successful recipients by May 2015.
