There is still time to submit an application for Round 3 of East Gippsland Water’s Native Vegetation and Habitat Creation Grants, which are open to educational and not-for-profit community groups across the region.
Grants are available for new and existing projects. More information, including the eligibility criteria and an application pack, is available from the website www.egwater.vic.gov.au/grants, or by contacting East Gippsland Water’s Community Engagement Team on 1800 671 841.
This initiative is part of the organisation’s ongoing commitment to enhance the liveability and bolster the resilience of the East Gippsland region. Over the first two rounds of the program more than $70,000 funding was distributed between projects in Lakes Entrance, Paynesville, Bairnsdale, Buchan, Swifts Creek, Toorloo Arm and Raymond Island for this financial year alone. Some also stand to benefit from multiple years of funding.
Applications for the latest round need to be submitted by 4pm, on Friday 12 July, 2019. Successful grant recipients will be announced on East Gippsland Water’s In the Flow page in the East Gippsland News on 21 August, as well as on the organisation’s website.
