The Northern Agricultural Catchments Council’s Coastal Quick Step Grants have been designed exclusively to service community groups and small one-off coastal projects that can be completed in a short time frame.
Up to $2,000 is available through this grants program and community groups can apply anytime throughout the year.
In recent years, the Coastal Quick Step Grants have enabled a variety of groups in the Northern Agricultural Region (NAR) to complete dune restoration and protection projects at Coronation Beach (Shire of Chapman Valley), Glenfield Beach (Geraldton), Jacques Point (Kalbarri) and the Lancelin foreshore as well as water quality monitoring at the Moore River Estuary.
Educational projects are encouraged as well as the installation of interpretive signage, workshops and events that boost our community’s engagement with our coastal environment.
All projects must be completed by June 2018.
NACC’s Coastal and Marine Project Officer in Geraldton, Vanessa McGuiness said community groups could grow a small idea into a massive project very quickly with the help of a Quick Step Grant.
“We’ve seen many successful projects completed with these grants already and look forward to strengthening the coastline and our community relationships in the future.”
Do you have a small idea that can make a big difference to your coast? Let us know.
