Funds to deliver for the environment

RESEARCH organisations in the Clarence Valley are encouraged to lodge their expressions of interest for a new round of the Environmental Research Grant program.

The long-standing NSW program aims to solve general environmental issues and generate new knowledge to facilitate solutions to environmental problems.

Clarence MP Chris Gulaptis said it was a a terrific opportunity for research organisations to utilise these funds to deliver positive outcomes for the local environment.

"(This) program is to support applied social, economic and biophysical environmental research projects, with the priorities under this round being biosecurity, climate change, waste and pollution and mechanisms for social engagement," he said.

There is $1 million in total available for the program, with grants of up to $150,000 each.

The closing date for EOIs is March 11, and invitations to submit full applications are expected to follow the assessment of EOIs.

Successful grants will be announced by November.
