NPWS Friends of Parks Grant Programs

Friends of Parks grant programs recognise the significant work undertaken by Friends of Parks groups supporting South Australia’s national parks and conservation programs.

This funding helps groups to undertake a range of threat abatement, biodiversity conservation, Aboriginal cultural heritage and European heritage projects in the state’s national parks and reserves, and includes off-park landscape-scale threatened species or other eligible projects.

Partnership Grants Program

The Friends of Parks – Partnership Grants Program, provides an opportunity for registered Friends groups to partner with other volunteer or NGO conservation organizations such as Trees for Life, Nature Foundation, or a Local Action Planning group to achieve more sizeable or complex project outcomes. Grants of up to $25,000 per year are available to be completed within three years.

Applications for the 2021-22 Partnership Grants Program have now closed.
