National Heritage Fund applications open

Wetland planting

Applications are now open for the Natural Heritage Fund, designed to assist private landowners to protect or enhance indigenous biodiversity on their land.

It is a small fund made available instead of rates remissions on a limited number of properties. Biodiversity protection and enhancement is a core activity of regional and unitary councils.

Any privately owned land within the Gisborne district is eligible to apply for funding. There’s about $40,000 available that can be allocated to one or more projects.

Applications for the 2020 funding round must be received by 5pm, Monday 14 October.

To apply, fill in the application form
