The On-ground Resource Management grants are available to assist landholders with projects such as Protecting and managing rivers and creeks, Rangeland Grazing, Revegetation, shelter belts and Windbreaks, and any other projects which aim to improve the sustainable management of our Natural Resources.

The Threatened Species Funding grants are for on-ground works including but not limited to Pest Animal Control, Weed Control, And Revegetation of native Box Gum Grassy Woodlands, and are available to residents of the Gwydir Shire and Pallamallawa. Pallamallawa was specifically included in the area covered due to the increasing Koala numbers there.
