Indigenous Ranger Biosecurity Program – Ranger Capability Building grants
Show close time for other time zones
The Australian Government is inviting applications from Ranger organisations with current fee-for-service arrangements with the Department of Agriculture, Water and the Environment (the department), via a restricted process, to apply for a grant under the Ranger Capability Building Program.
The Ranger Capability Building Program (the program) will run over 3 years from 2020-21 to 2022-23 and will be delivered through the Indigenous Rangers Biosecurity Program. $1.1 million (GST inclusive) is available per funding round (that is. for each year).
The program will enable Ranger organisations with existing biosecurity fee-for-service arrangements with the department to undertake capability building activities and purchase equipment and training to further enhance the capacity of Rangers to conduct biosecurity surveillance and response work.
These grants will support Rangers having the necessary training and equipment to undertake biosecurity activities for the department and potentially enable them to expand the scope and complexity of activities they can undertake in the future, thereby potentially enabling groups to increase their biosecurity fee-for-service income.
These grants will also contribute to:
- Increased skills and capability of Indigenous rangers to enhance their career pathways.
- Improved work health and safety of the work undertaken by Indigenous rangers in remote areas.
To be eligible to receive a grant, you must be one of the organisations listed in the Grant Opportunity Guidelines and have received an invitation to apply through GrantConnect.
