EnviroFund Projects

Attention: open in a new window. PDFPrint

Envirofund was a funding program introduced by the Federal Government in 2002 that assisted local communities in undertaking on-ground environmental activities such as revegetation of native species and waterway and native vegetation protection fencing. It was part of the community section of the Australian Government’s $3 billion Natural Heritage Trust. Since its beginning in April 2002, Envirofund provided financial support for nearly 4000 projects, totaling a $59 million investment Australia-wide.

Two rounds of funding were offered throughout each financial year, totaling around $20 million. Grants of up to $50,000 could be applied for with applicants contributing towards the total cost of the project either through cash and/or in-kind support. The EnviroFund program generally provided up to one dollar for every dollar or in-kind equivalent contributed by the landholder or community group. Table 3 and 4 below summarises the details of the projects administered through the Gillamii Centre.
