Land Restoration Fund – Grant Program


The Queensland Government’s $500 million Land Restoration Fund aims to expand carbon farming in the state by supporting land-sector projects that deliver clear environmental and economic co-benefits.

Carbon farming refers to land management activities that reduce carbon emissions into the atmosphere. This can be achieved by planting trees, protecting native forest by reducing land clearing, managing bushfires through savanna burning and changing farming practices to increase soil carbon.

There are currently a number of grant programs available for landowners to undertake environmental planting and riparian restoration projects. For any growers interested or require further information please refer to the below link.

Applications for the current round of funding close 5pm, Friday 23rd November 2018.
