The NSW Nationals in the state government have announced a record 94 grants have been awarded through the Recreational Fishing Trust.
The Trust takes fishing licence fees and invests them back into local community projects like jetties, boat ramps, cleaning tables, and education projects.
Through these latest grants, more than $17 million will be given for projects including fish aggregating devices, fish stocking, offshore artificial reefs, and habitat restoration projects.
A new round of grants is now open, and the NSW Department of Primary Industries will accept applications until Friday, October 15.
The Fund is your licence fees at work, so if you have an idea for a grant, please get your application in.
Grants are available for small projects involving less than $10,000 and large projects valued at more than $10,000.
Joint saltwater and freshwater projects are also encouraged.
Funding guidelines and application forms for the next round of the Recreational Fishing Trusts grants are available at www.dpi.nsw.gov.au
