Funding currently available through the CMA
Local governments, schools, and non-government community groups and networks are invited to apply for sponsorship from the Hunter-Central Rivers CMA. Current programs provide funds for community education events and activities (CMA wide), support for community groups (Newcastle catchment), and marine debris education and capacity building (Hunter estuary and Great Lakes).
In 2012-13 the CMA is offering Australian Government Caring for Our Country funding through Wyong Shire Council, to support landholders, land managers, community groups and non-government organisations to improve water quality in the Tuggerah Lakes catchment, by protecting and enhancing riparian areas and native vegetation; controlling lantana, bitou bush, boneseed, blackberry and bridal creeper; and improving land management practices.
This funding program has now closed.
