Do you want to green up, clean up or conserve your environment?
I encourage community organisations like Rotary, Lions Clubs, Indigenous organisations, schools, and conservation groups to apply for grants through the Communities Environment Program (CEP).
Through this funding, each electorate – including Maranoa – can receive $150,000 to fund up to 20 projects ranging from $2500 to $20,000.
What I like most about CEP grants is that funds filter down to support projects undertaken by grassroots community organisations to restore wetlands, riverbanks and waterways, protect native animals, reduce waste and litter, and support local parks and community areas.
I am committed to harnessing local communities and local knowledge to protect our environment because they know what decisions need to be made to help our local community.
Community groups in Maranoa can contact my Dalby office on 4662 2715 or download an Expression of Interest form.
For more information, please visit www.environment.gov.au/cep .
Expressions of interest are due by March 22 at the latest.
