In partnership with Healthy Land and Water we are launching the fifth year of the Community Marine Debris Grant Program. Each grant will provide up to $1500 to catchment groups and schools in South East Queensland for reimbursement of costs incurred in completing waterway litter cleanup projects (waterway may be freshwater, brackish or marine). Funding up to $2000 per project will be available for sites within designed hot spot areas. To check if your site is a hot spot area please contact Rachael Nasplezes at Healthy Land and Water on 07 3177 9109 or rachael.n@hlw.org.au

If you have questions please email researchandrescue@vrtp.com.au
