G'day Landcarers, 

Hope you are all keeping warm during these winter days and are managing okay as the COVID restrictions in NSW are extended and look like they may be here to stay for a while yet. 

I am writing to bring your attention to some funding opportunities currently available. Please read further to find out more about the three different bushfire recovery grants that are open now. As always, I am happy to help support groups to compile and submit their applications. Please get in touch if you would like a hand. 

Also, Bega Valley Shire Council are currently asking for input into an update of their Towards 2042 Community Strategic Plan. They are looking for community to give them some feedback on their current community strategic plan and guidance as what you as a group or individual see as the main priorities for the Bega Valley LGA in the coming decades. You can complete the survey here (takes about 5mins). 

All the best, Jess
