Nothing fishy about deadline extension


The deadline for the region’s fishers to get their applications in for the NSW Government’s Habitat Action Grants program is this Friday, after the deadline was extended.


Recreational fishing groups, Landcare organisations, high schools and local councils in the Hawkesbury area are all be able to submit a funding application to help their native fish habitats flourish.

Projects funded through the Habitat Action Grants could include rehabilitation of river banks or wetlands, re-snagging waterways, reintroducing native vegetation or modifying barriers for fish to passage.

Habitat Action Grants are funded from the Recreational Fishing Trusts, where all funds raised by the NSW Recreational Fishing Fee are placed.

To apply for Habitat Actions Grants funding, groups should visit

www.dpi.nsw.gov.au/hag.

Since they began in 2009, the Recreational Fishing Trusts have invested more than $5 million into the Habitat Action Grants program across NSW.
