Community Conservation Assistance
Unlike the Lord Mayor’s Community Sustainability and Environmental Grants, CCA is not a cash grant. Rather, Council works in partnership with groups and individuals to deliver on-ground weed control and bush restoration works.
Groups who are eligible to apply for CCA are:
- Habitat Brisbane
- Creek Catchment groups
- private landholders who are members of the Wildlife Conservation Partnerships Program (Land for Wildlife).
Priority will be given to on-ground bushland restoration projects that reduce the impact of invasive weed species and deliver additional benefits, such as:
- rehabilitation and expansion of core habitats, including natural areas
- strengthening ecological and riparian corridors
- reducing erosion and sediment runoff into waterways.
The funding can be allocated for materials that are to be used directly in the project and are effectively ‘disposable’. The items include, but are not limited to:
- locally-native plants, tree bags, weed mats, mulch, water crystals or other materials designed to protect and assist plant growth
- products for soil stabilisation such as jute matting and coir logs
- weed control, including large weed tree removal.
Applications are currently open and will close at midnight on Monday 31 July 2017.
Applicants will be notified of the outcome of their application in October 2017.
