The funding is an opportunity for groups to run training and information events for their members and the public, write a strategy or operational weed plan, or undertake research to better detect or manage priority weeds.

Matt Kennedy, Hunter Local Land Services’ Regional Weeds Coordinator said, “We are inviting landholders and organisations in the eligible regions across the Hunter to put forward a wide variety of project ideas for funding.

“The funding is perfect for local Landcare groups and primary producer groups to implement priority weed control projects that would normally be too big to implement individually.

“It is a perfect time for groups to consider what their weed objectives are over the next few years and what projects would help their community minimise the impact of weeds in their area.”

The Hunter Strategic Weeds Grant funding will help deliver the actions outlined in the Hunter Regional Strategic Weed Management Plan and is made up of contributions from the Hunter Catchment Contributions and the Widespread Weeds Fund.

There is detailed information about the Strategic Weeds Grant Funding Program and the online application form available from the Hunter Local Land Services website at
