Claim cash to clean local rivers

Environment groups in the Clarence and Richmond Valleys should consider applying for Habitat Action Grants of up to $40,000 to help improve local fish habitat, according to Clarence Nationals MP, Chris Gulaptis.


“This excellent NSW Government program rewards volunteers who are trying to improve their local environment,” Mr Gulaptis said.

“It is specifically tied to waterways because it is funded by recreational fishing licence fees.”

Examples of eligible projects include removing invasive weeds and reestablishing native vegetation on riverbanks and opening floodgates or improving road crossings to remove barriers to fish movement.

Applications for Habitat Action Grants open from 10 August 2015 and close 16 October 2015.
