Landholder Environment Grant guidelines

These guidelines should be read in conjunction with council's Community Grants Policy 

Council has a ‘Weeds Awareness and Information Kit’ available on disc. Ask a Conservation Partnerships Officer for a copy during the site visit.

The SEQ Catchment website provides fact sheets to help in the planning and delivery of projects. 

Fact sheets and other information on a range of environmental weeds, their appropriate control techniques and registered herbicides can be found in the 'Plants' section of the Department of Primary Industries website.


All Environment Levy Funded grants must be acquitted eight weeks after the project is completed. All acquittals are completed on line.

The acquittal process is how grant recipients show council how they spent the funds as per their funding agreement.

Organisations or individuals cannot be considered for further council funding if previous grant acquittal conditions have not been met.
