Bush Connect program funding available for eligible groups.

The NSW Environmental Trust is now inviting applications from eligible groups for grant funding under the Bush Connect program. This one-off round will close to applications on 19 June 2015.

Bush Connect is a contestable grants program seeking to achieve long-term outcomes for the NSW environment within the Great Eastern Ranges (GER) corridor.

Funded by the NSW Environmental Trust, the program encourages partnerships between community and government organisations to protect, conserve and restore the natural environment within the GER corridor.


The objectives of the Bush Connect program are to:

  • Improve the condition and connectivity of natural resources and ecosystems within the GER corridor.
  • Increase the area of land (public and private) suitable for long-term protection for its environmental value through appropriate conservation mechanisms.
  • Increase the number of partnerships and alignments of effort that protect the environmental values of the GER corridor.

How much is available?

The program will provide up to $8 million over 6 years. Individual grants of between $250,000 and $500,000 are available.
