The Wildlife and Habitat Bushfire Recovery Program will provide funding to support the immediate survival and long-term recovery and resilience for fire-affected Australian animals, plants, ecological communities and other natural assets and their cultural values for Indigenous Australians.
There is up to $12 million available for grants under the Program, with grants of between $100,000 and $1 million being offered.
It is anticipated that the Program will be delivered over two or more tranches.
Tranche 1 closed at 11.30 pm on 22 April 2020.
Tranche 2 closes at 11:30pm on 28 May 2020.
Tranche 2 priorities are attached under Addenda.
Please note: on 28 May 2020 the Closing Date and Time was changed for the grant opportunity so that it can be kept open for a possible Tranche 3. The Closing Date and Time for Tranche 2 remains unchanged. No decision has yet been taken on whether there will be a Tranche 3. You cannot submit an application after the closing date and time for Tranche 2. If there is a Tranche 3 you will receive a notification via GrantConnect.
To be eligible for funding you must be an Australian legal entity with an Australian bank account.
Grant activities must be completed by 30 June 2021.
