Blog Post - FNPW Community Conservation Grants Now Open

Foundation for National Parks & Wildlife Community Conservation Grants are now open for applications. 

If you are working to preserve a piece of Australian cultural heritage, helping to restore a patch of habitat, connecting more people with our national parks or doing research on a threatened Aussie species you can apply for a Community Conservation Grant from the Foundation for National Parks & Wildlife.

“2020 saw an increased interest in nature and many people found a new appreciation for our National Parks and our unique wildlife. Through our small grants program we aim to support community groups and organisations who are working to protect our natural heritage and connect Australians with nature”, said Kylie Piper, Projects & Education Manager for the Foundation for National Parks & Wildlife. “Organisations and individuals from all across Australia are eligible to receive funding through these grants and we encourage everyone working towards connecting more people with nature to apply”.

The small grants round will be open for applications from January 1, 2021 until February 26, 2021.

Key areas of focus for this year’s grants are:

  • Healing our Land - Protection, restoration, rehabilitation and revegetation of degraded habitats to ensure their ability to sustain native species.
  • Saving Species - Scientific research with tangible conservation outcomes and on-ground works to conserve Australia’s threatened species.
  • Indigenous Heritage - Conserving and celebrating Australia’s indigenous heritage as part of the gift we leave to future generations.
  • Growing Parks - Improving National Park facilities for the enjoyment of all, to foster and encourage the appreciation of nature.

Applications for the Community Conservation Grants are now online and individuals, NGOs or government departments working in these areas are all eligible to apply for funding for projects commencing in 2021.
