20 Million Trees Programme
The 20 Million Trees Programme, an initiative of the Australian Government Department of Environment, is a hands-on, practical program that supports revegetation and biodiversity conservation projects across Australia. By getting involved in the 20 Million Trees Programme, community groups, schools, landholders and land managers can generate real benefits by establishing green corridors and urban forests, providing habitat for threatened species and sequestering carbon.
How to get involved
Applications for Round One of the programme are now open and close on October 30, 2014 at 2:00 pm AEDT. Projects in Round One may request funding of between $20,000 and $100,000 with projects typically underway for 18 months to three years. To get involved, check the 20 Million Trees website and follow the step by step application process – http://www.nrm.gov.au/national/20-million-trees/competitive-grants.
Working with the Green Army
If you apply to the Green Army Programme for a Green Army Project, your Green Army Team can assist with the delivery of a 20 Million Trees Project where this complements, but does not duplicate, the scope of the approved Green Army Project.
