South Australia's south-east landholders affected by the recent bushfires can now apply for grants up to $5,000 for recovery works on private land.
The South East Fire Landscape Recovery Grants can be used for post-fire recovery works on private land like, pest plant and feral animal control, fencing to restrict stock from native vegetation, erosion control to stabilise soil and replacing paddock trees.
South East Natural Resources Soil Coordinator Lucy Dodd said the grants will also be considered in retrospect where recovery work has already been completed.
“The South East Fire Landscape Recovery Grants are intended to provide support to locals and to help restore the landscape and resources affected by this season of bushfire," Ms Dodd said.
"Grant applications will be assessed on recovery projects that not only demonstrate good value for money, but also have agricultural and environmental benefit.
"The grants will support local landholders and farmers who have been affected by 2019-2020 bushfires to help restore the landscape and natural resources."
Landholders affected by the Keilira, Bunbury and Carcuma fires are eligible to apply. Applications close on 18 May 2020.

These grants are funded by the South East Natural Resources Management Board and Commonwealth Fire Recovery Funds.
