Carbon Farming Outreach Program

ClosedGrant Closed: 14th of August 2023 - 5:00 pm (extended) Value: $1 Million to $17.5 Million Run By: Australian Government Department of Climate Change, Energy, the Environment and Water Further Information: https://www.grants.gov.au/Go/Show?GoUuid=9f76dd64-83ed-468a-9c08-eaaa242e0e10

The Carbon Farming Outreach Program (the program) will run over 4 years from 2022-23 to 2025 26. The program has two aspects, a procurement process to develop a training package on behalf of DCCEEW and a grant program to deliver the training package. The program aims to support Australian farmers and land managers to reduce emissions and sequester carbon to contribute to Australia’s climate change commitments.

The purpose of this grant opportunity is to deliver training and advice to empower Australian farmers and land managers, including First Nations peoples, to participate in carbon markets and integrate low emission technologies and practices into their farming operations and land management practices.

Funding will support projects by trusted advisers to deliver training and advice to farmers and land managers across Australia on:

  • farm and land emissions and carbon storage
  • options to reduce emissions and sequester carbon
  • carbon markets and certifications
  • legal and financial implications
  • benefits and trade-offs, including co-benefits such as biodiversity, climate adaptation, improved farm resilience and productivity
  • interactions with natural capital markets and schemes
  • case studies tailored to regional conditions
  • relevant international context

Trusted advisers will be provided with a training package and support from DCCEEW, via train the-trainer sessions and networking opportunities.

Organisations that we would expect to be funded under the Carbon Farming Outreach Program’s grants include rural service and extension providers, natural resource management organisations and First Nations groups. These grants are not intended to fund Carbon Service Providers.
