The NSW Environmental Trust usually calls for applications to its Restoration and Rehabilitation Grants Program in August / September each year.
The call for applications will now commence in November 2017 with applications closing in early February 2018.
Successful grantees will still be announced in May/June, with projects commencing as normal in August.
This shift is in response to internal process reviews and feedback from applicants and grantees within the recent independent program evaluation (undertaken by the Natural Resources Commission), including concerns about the length of time between application submission and notification of successful projects.
