Writing an effective funding application
Funding for environmental projects is limited and programs are highly competitive. Workshop discussion and activities will help participants appreciate the process of formulating a sound project proposal and clearly articulating this in a convincing application. The workshop will examine the basics of ecological restoration projects and a number of funding options. Budgeting, risk management, setting targets, measuring project success, monitoring and reporting will be discussed.
The workshop is a collaborative effort between Council and the Foundation for National Parks and Wildlife, an organisation that works with scientists, indigenous and community groups and individuals to conserve Australia’s unique habitats, species and cultural heritage. It offers significant funding opportunities to help private landholders create healthy habitat on their own land.
Jennifer Morgan, Grants Manager, FNPW, will co-present the workshop with Council’s Project Officer – Biodiversity, Michael Corke. Particular requirements of FNPW and Council funding programs will be examined and private land conservation options will be discussed.
Morning tea is included. Places are limited and bookings are essential by contacting Council’s Contact Centre on 02 6670 2400.
