Expressions of Interest for funding under Round 3 are now closed
North east Victorian landholders can apply for funding to create and improve habitat for Regent Honeyeaters and Swift Parrots, two nationally endangered birds.
Expressions of Interest for funding under Round 3 of the Bush for Birds project are now open until 10 September 2021.
The North East CMA is delivering this project in partnership with Trust for Nature. So far, 65 private landholder sites across north east Victoria, covering more than 1800 ha, have already been supported to improve habitat through the Bush for Birds project. The project also aims to increase by 200 ha the area of land permanently protected for biodiversity by establishing in-perpetuity conservation covenants.
Bush for Birds is supported by the North East Catchment Management Authority (CMA) through funding from the Australian Government’s National Landcare Program.
Expressions of Interest in the next round of grant funding opened on 9 August and will close on 10 September. Details on the types of sites that are eligible and the assessment criteria are available below. Please note that additional criteria apply to Round 3.
