Natural resource funding

The Natural Resources Recovery Program (NRRP) has up to $10 million in funding available per year to eligible Queensland-based natural resource management organisations for projects that promote sustainable outcomes and innovation for land resources.

The program builds on the success of the Natural Resources Investment Program, with a focus on sustainable land management and regional prosperity by investing in our land and vegetation resources, our regions, and science. The NRRP will ensure that funds go to regions and activities not completely supported by other grant programs.

Applications for the Natural Resources Recovery Program are now open.
