Boost for Regional NRM delivery

18th February 2009

The Avon Catchment Council (ACC) is pleased to announce that the Avon River Basin has been allocated $3,926,000 as Regional Base Level Funding for Natural Resource Management (NRM) under the Australian Government’s Caring for our Country program.

This annual allocation will continue for the next four years under the 2009-10 Caring for our Country (CFoC) Business Plan, and is part of $138 million per year that has been provided to 56 NRM regions across Australia.

The Australian Government has invited competitive project proposals from organisations across the country to deliver projects that achieve targets outlined in the 2009-2010 CFoC Business Plan. The ACC is currently preparing investment proposals in partnership with Avon River Basin NRM organisations and community groups to strategically deliver these targets.
