Parliamentary Secretary for Natural Resources, Troy Grant, congratulated NSW Catchment Management Authorities (CMAs) on securing $35.5 million in Commonwealth biodiversity funding.


“Funding under the Commonwealth’s Biodiversity Fund Round One was keenly sought by all states,” Mr Grant said.


“It is a measure of the quality of the CMA submissions that 21 projects succeeded in attracting funds.


“The funding will be disbursed to the CMAs over the next three to six years.


“This outcome clearly demonstrates the high regard in which our CMAs are held, not only by the NSW Government and their local communities but also by the Commonwealth.


“The funding for CMAs represents a major share of the total funds distributed nationally in this first round of the program.


“NSW CMAs are to be commended in submitting such high quality proposals backed up by their strong record of achievement.


“Projects funded across the state range from revegetation, to biodiversity, carbon capture and fauna habitat protection.


“The CMAs are leaders in financial management, corporate governance, project management and natural resource management planning and this result brings these strengths into focus.


“NSW Landcare groups, state government agencies and local government were also very successful in securing biodiversity funding.”
