In the 2018-19 State Budget, the Government announced the creation of a new Tasmanian Weeds Action Fund (WAF) of $5 million over five years commencing in 2018.
Delivery of the WAF will be across two stages – Stage One is now complete and provided a total of $140,000 in small grants of between $1000 to $5000.
The second stage is currently being developed and will see the roll-out the remaining funds from 2019-20 through to 2022-23.
Stage Two will also involve the appointment of a Coordinator, who will assist with the delivery of the WAF and work with project proponents.
Applications for the next round of funding of approximately $1.1 million are expected to be invited early in 2020. Further information will be provided as it becomes available.
