Funding climate action on your farm

Applications are now open for the Australian Government’s $64 million Carbon Farming Futures Extension and Outreach Program.

Individuals and organisations can apply for grants to assist farmers and land managers to adopt technologies and practices to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and participate in the Carbon Farming Initiative.

Minister Ludwig said the program will help farmers to financially benefit from creating Carbon Farming Initiative carbon credits.

"This program provides farmers with the one-to-one assistance they need to make land sector emissions management part of their normal business decision making," Minister Ludwig said.
"Funding is available for agribusinesses, farming groups, industry organisations and extension organisations to deliver climate action information to people on the ground."

Applications are open until April 2016, while funds remain, with a bulk assessment at least twice each year. 
To be included in the first assessment, applications are due 5 pm, 19 December 2012.
