Applications are now open for Round 4 of the Federal Government’s Smart Farms Small Grants scheme.
Farmers, fishers and foresters can apply for funding of up to $100,000 to support natural resource management.
Up to $6.5 million is available under Round 4, with individual grants of between $5000 and $100,000 available.
“This is a hugely popular program that provides a real bang for buck when it comes to delivering benefits for farms, the environment and local communities,” Agriculture Minister David Littleproud said.
The grants are designed to support one or two-year projects that boost best practice sustainable farming awareness, skills and capacity.
“We’re looking for projects across a range of areas such as pest control, vegetation management, farm input efficiency, climate and market management, and the use of new technologies,” Mr Littleproud said.
