The Australian Government is inviting applications from Ranger organisations with current fee-for-service arrangements with the Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry (DAFF), via a restricted process, to apply for a grant under the Ranger Capability Building Program, Round 2.

The Ranger Capability Building Program (the grant program) is delivered through the Indigenous Rangers Biosecurity Program. $1.1 million is available for Round 2.

The grant program enables 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 support Rangers having the necessary training and equipment to undertake biosecurity activities for the department and potentially enable groups 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.
