The bushfires of 2019-20 have had a devastating impact on Australia’s native flora and fauna. While there are some encouraging signs, experts advise it will take at least a decade or more of sustained effort for our native species to recover. This program will run over two years from 2020-21 to 2021-22to help local communities deliver bushfire recovery for their local environment, and support broader long-term recovery and resilience. The program is part of the Australian Government’s $200 million investment in bushfire recovery for native plants, animals, ecological communities and natural assets.

The objectives of this grant opportunity are to encourage recovery efforts in areas affected by the 2019-20 bushfires by:

  • supporting recovery of native flora and fauna
  • involving local communities, community groups and Traditional Owners, in delivering bushfire recovery activities for native flora and fauna.

The program is confined to bushfire-affected areas within the eastern and southern part of Australia affected by the 2019-20 bushfires, or adjacent to an affected area. Your project can include activities at different locations, as long as they are all within or adjacent to an area that has been affected by the 2019-20 bushfires. All of the Northern Inland region is within the area covered by this program.

While grant amount will be up to 100% of eligible project expenditurecontributions to your project by you or a third party are encouraged and may be cash or in-kind.
