Native Vegetation Heritage Agreement Grant Program

The Minister for Climate, Environment and Water, Dr Susan Close and the Native Vegetation Council are pleased to invite you to get involved with the Native Vegetation Heritage Agreement (NVHA) Grant Program.

NVHA Grant Program provides increased support to landowners to help them manage biodiversity on their properties. This includes:

  • land management advice and site visits,
  • grant funding,
  • assistance with grant applications,
  • training and networking events.

To get involved in the program, please submit an Expression of Interest and a Heritage Agreement Officer will be in touch to discuss a site visit and what support could be available for you.

To find out more about the NVHA Grant Program please read the Native Vegetation Heritage Agreement Grant Guideline or the program overview below. For further information contact the Native Vegetation Branch at or phone 8303 9777

NVHA Grant Program overview:

There are three tiers of grants available (GST inclusive):

  • Micro (<$1,000)
  • Medium (between $1,001 and $15,000)
  • Large (between $15,001 and $100,000)

Grants can be for one-off activities or activities that span multiple years.

Grants are available for works on individual Heritage Agreements or works spanning multiple Heritage Agreements.

If your grant will be less than $15,000, a Heritage Agreement Officer will develop a simple Works Plans that will also be your grant application.

If your grant will be between $15,001 and $100,000, you will need to prepare a grant application. Our Heritage Agreement Officers will provide you a copy of the application and are available to assist you with this process. We are here to help.
