NSW Senator Jim Molan is calling on local landholders and community groups to apply for round two of Smart Farms Small Grants.
Senator Molan said Landcare groups, natural resource management bodies, indigenous organisations and community groups in Eden-Monaro could apply for grants of between $5000 and $200,000.
“The Coalition Government is supporting farmers and community groups to make a difference,” Senator Molan said.
“This is a chance for locals to receive funding and build on the work they’ve already started.
“I know there is a lot of work being done locally to support smart farming practices and to protect and improve natural resources.
“We are providing funding for new projects to improve our soil, biodiversity and vegetation.
“They will also help support water security and promote climate-smart farming.
“The first round of funding was highly competitive and I strongly encourage those who missed out to apply again.”
Federal Minister for Agriculture David Littleproud said smart farms grants could make a real difference locally.
“The future of Aussie agriculture lies in sustainable farming and land management, and we want to help kick that along.”
