Coastal Small Grants


Corangamite CMA is calling for expressions of interest for its Coastal Small Grants.


The objective of the program is to support community involvement in protecting and/or enhancing coastal biodiversity assets with a focus on combining community engagement activities with on ground coastal outcomes.

The Coastal Small Grants program is designed to provide opportunities for community based groups along the Corangamite coastline to be engaged in environmental works on public land. A particular emphasis this round is the opportunity to work with and engage with Indigenous communities and / or non-traditional groups with an interest in natural resource management.

The Coastal Small Grants Program is designed to contribute to the following:
• Facilitate on ground biodiversity conservation in coastal areas.
• Enhance and maintain the capacity of individuals and / or community groups to undertake coastal biodiversity activities.
• Increase the volunteer movement for coastal NRM.
• Relationships and partnerships are built, maintained and strengthened.
• Raise awareness and generate enthusiasm for participation and innovation in coastal NRM activities.
• Provide a catalyst for changing coastal land management behaviour/practices.

Expressions of interest will be received until the program is satisfactorily subscribed.

For further information or to submit an expression of interest regarding the coastal small grants, please contact Polly Matthews – Catchment Coordinator on 0407 341 350. Please note that Polly does not work on Thursdays.
