Subject: Ground Cover Incentive Project - Funding available

The CTLLS is currently promoting the Sustainable Agriculture Groundcover Incentive Program.  The project will assist landholders to prevent degradation of natural resources by ensuring that adequate ground cover is maintained across their property. The Incentive project will assist landholders to undertake training and offer financial assistance to construct farm infrastructure (Controlled Stock Management Areas) that will improve grazing management and groundcover outcomes. 

The EOI period opens today - 31st March 2015 and will close on Friday 24th April 2015. It would be appreciated if you could please circulate the link below to your contacts and ask that they also circulate to interested people. http://centraltablelands.lls.nsw.gov.au/our-region/key-projects/groundcover-incentive-project
