Grants and funding
Each year Riverina Local Land Services delivers a number of grant and funding programs. There are a wide range of projects that address the broad areas of:
- productive farms
- natural landscapes
- community grants
Projects will vary across local government areas within the Riverina region.
When available, funding opportunities are advertised through our monthly e-newsletter and on our website.
Landholders in the Riverina Local Land Services region were able to apply for incentive funding in 2018/19. Below is a snapshot of each project that had funding available.
Expressions Of Interest to be involved in any of these projects closed on November 16.
For more information on each project follow the links below.
Improving Natural Landscapes
This project focuses on a range of restoration activities that protect and restore threatened species and ecological communities across the Riverina. Good quality remnant native vegetation exists across the Riverina, often on private land. These areas are home to Inland Grey Box Grassy Woodlands, White Box-Yellow Box, Blakely’s Red Gum Grassy Woodlands, Weeping Myall Woodland, Buloke Woodland and associated grasslands. This project aims to manage and enhance these areas for future generations.
Adjungbilly Creek Catchment - Save Our Species
The Adjungbilly Creek is a unique catchment in the Riverina Local Land Services region due to its populations of a number of endangered plants and animals.
Over the past four years, Riverina Local Land Services (LLS) has worked with Landcare, landholders and researchers to gain an understanding of the extent of the population of these endangered species as well as undertaking preliminary works to assist their recovery.
Through this ongoing project, we have improved habitat for endangered species and ecological communities through the protection and restoration of 227 hectares of the catchment by revegetating gullies to improve water quality, protected areas of native vegetation by installing 41 kilometres of fencing and re-established corridors of native vegetation by planting 30,000 native trees and shrubs.
Saving Our Squirrel Gliders
This project aims to improve breeding and foraging habitat through the planting of new corridors and protection of core breeding habitat. This project works with land owners within the project area to restore existing vegetation and create new vegetation corridors that will provide new and improved foraging and nesting habitat. This project will also help coordinate pest control activities for foxes. A coordinated approach to baiting will lead to a greater reduction in their numbers and reduce the impact of predation. In conjunction with these on ground works we will also be running community based monitoring in the form of spotlighting events.
