Complying with the national environment law (Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999)
The department recognises the important role farmers, agricultural organisations and natural resource managers play in protecting our environment.
Funding assistance for farmers
There are several programs to help farmers and others manage our natural resources and nationally protected matters, such as threatened species and ecological communities. You can contact the environment liaison officer or a caring for our country facilitator for more information.
Caring for our Country
Caring for our Country is the way the Australian Government funds environmental management of our natural resources. Caring for our Country supports communities, farmers and other land managers protect Australia’s natural environment and sustainably produce food and fibre.
Environment grants and funding
The Australian Government provides funding assistance through a range of programs for heritage, water management and renewable energy.
GrantsLINK makes it easier to find suitable and relevant grants for community projects from the many Australian Government grants that are available.
