Protection of the Environment Trust 2020/21 Grants
The POET, established in 2006, promotes the protection and enhancement of the natural environment, and provides funding for environmental projects in the former Gosford City Council Local Government Area.
Central Coast Council Mayor Lisa Matthews said a key purpose of the Trust was the conservation of Indigenous flora and fauna.
"Our community values the natural environment of the Central Coast - it is what we are renowned for and a key priority for Council is ensuring the preservation of our environmental resources for future generations," Mayor Matthews said.
"Funding is now available through the Trust for individuals, community groups and organisations for the delivery of projects that enhance our natural environment.
"If your project has an environmental focus and can demonstrate outcomes that promote and enhance the natural environment or provide information, education or research about a significant aspect of the natural environment then I encourage you to apply."
Projects that have previously received funding include bush regeneration to support the work of environmental volunteers working in the Coastal Open Space System and Natural Reserves, and an education program to develop and install Local Species Interpretive Signs for the Rumbalara Environmental Education Centre.
Applications can be made until Friday, 31 May 2021 and will be assessed by the POET Committee when they meet during the next 12 months.
