Calling all community groups connected to a Responsible Wood certified forest! Applications for the Responsible Wood Small Grants Program closes Sunday, the 15th of November 2020…

Launched in August 2020 the Responsible Wood Small Grants Program is aimed at supporting local communities connected to Responsible Wood certified forests around Australia.

According to Ms Graham, the Responsible Wood Small Grants Coordinator, community groups have until this Sunday, the 15th of November 2020 to apply with applications assessed by an independent panel of judges thereafter. Megan explains:

“The Responsible Wood Small Grants Program is a good opportunity for community groups to obtain support to undertake small-scale projects,” said Megan.

“We are excited to see what ideas will be proposed, which could include an application from a Men’s Shed to build a picnic area or from a bush walking or bike club to build or restore walking or bike tracks. Local Landcare groups could also apply for a grant to improve forest connectivity,” she said.

Following the application process an announcement of successful applicants is expected to be made in late November 2020 with projects to be completed by the end of May 2021.

Applications will only be accepted from local community groups, not-for-profit organisations, registered charities or schools or education institutions.
