Description:

The Australian Government is inviting organisations via a restricted process to apply for funding under the Indigenous Rangers Coastal Clean-up Project (IRCCP). 

The objective of the grant opportunity is to support Indigenous Ranger groups participating in the IRCCP to undertake their contracted ghost nets and marine debris activities for the department by supporting them to establish marine debris and ghost nets management programs in their areas, purchase equipment and undertake training, planning and coordination activities.

For this grant opportunity, up to $1.5 million (GST exclusive) is available across 14 invited organisations from 2022–23 to 2023–24. 

The intended outcomes of the grants are:

  • Indigenous Ranger groups are equipped with the skills and capability to undertake complex and sustainable marine debris and ghost net management activities on an ongoing basis 
  • improved ocean health and marine habitats to reduce threats to wildlife across the Gulf of Carpentaria
  • enhanced data surrounding marine debris and ghost net density levels to assist in future management
  • increased skills and capability of Indigenous rangers to enhance their career pathways
