Habitat action grants deadline extended

Fishers, cast your ideas to see local native fish habitats flourish – you now have just over one week to submit your Habitat Action Grants applications, after the closing date was extended, Minister for Agriculture Adam Marshall announced today.

Mr Marshall said that recreational fishing groups, Landcare organisations, high schools and local councils across the state would have until 16th October to apply for funding for their projects.

“I encourage all groups to take advantage of this fantastic funding opportunity and get their applications in, because time is running out,” Mr Marshall said.

“We’ve extended the deadline because I want to see as many of our beautiful waterways improved through the Habitat Action Grants as possible and give our local fishers better places to wet a line.

“Projects funded through this program could include everything from revegetating waterways with native plants to reintroducing lost woody habitat into rivers and estuaries for fish.”

Habitat Action Grants are funded from the Recreational Fishing Trusts, where all funds raised by the NSW Recreational Fishing Fee are placed, and Mr Marshall said to apply for this round groups should visit www.dpi.nsw.gov.au/hag.

“What’s great about these Grants is that they are initiatives conceived and led by local communities, both on the coast and inland,” Mr Marshall said.

“They know local waterways better than anyone, and I cannot wait to see more projects make a splash so that healthy fish are swimming in healthy rivers and dams.

“Even better is that fishos will be able to see their fishing licence fees being put to good use – this is the money they pay reinvested into their projects in their local area.”
