Applications are now closed for the SWRRFI and Healthy Waterways new Community Marine Debris (CMD) Grants program. The CMD program will provide funding for local groups to undertake on-ground waterway litter cleanup and address marine debris problems including identifying hot spots in South-East Queensland (QLD).
Waterway litter and debris, particularly plastic, pose a serious threat to our turtles and other marine wildlife. Understanding the range of items and their potential source are a vital step in creating a positive future for marine life.
Up to 14 projects can be supported through the grant scheme and each successful application will receive between $500 and $1000 to support the project.
