Conservation Management Payments for Landholders

Farm Infrastructure Landholders can now benefit from private land conservation, with grants available through the NSW Government’s Biodiversity Conservation Trust (BCT). 

In May 2018 the BCT opened the Conservation Management Program, including: 

  • Fixed Rate Offers (now open) – offering fixed price conservation management payments ($/ha/year) for landholders in priority investment areas who are willing to manage part of their land for conservation under a voluntary agreement.

Expressions of Interest for the Fixed Rate Offer close 29 June 2018.

  • Conservation Partners Grants (now open) – grants can assist landholders to maintain the ecological values of their properties.

These grants are open and available in an ongoing basis.

  • Conservation Partners Program – This program is for landholders wishing to enter into either a Wildlife Refuge Agreement or an in-perpetuity Conservation Agreement to protect and manage biodiversity on their land.
