The Our Marine Parks Grants program (the Program) was announced on 1 July 2018 to assist industries and communities to transition to the new management arrangements for Australian Marine Parks. 

This second round of the Program is dedicated to the many groups and sectors that have an interest in how Australian Marine Parks are managed and the capability and capacity to assist the Director of National Parks with this important task. The objectives of this grants round are two-fold: 

·         to support interested and capable organisations and community groups to engage in marine park management;  

·         to improve knowledge and understanding of Australian Marine Parks.  

This will be achieved by funding projects that best contribute to the desired vision, objectives and 10-year outcomes of the management programs identified in the Australian Marine Parks management plans (or for the South-east Network, the Management Strategies identified in the management plan).
