Better hop to it! Grant applications closing soon

Imagine what an extra $2000 – $5000 could do for your community group…

Is your not-for-profit community group planning a rabbit management project, event or activity?

And will it enhance the effect of the new strain of calici virus (RHDV1 K5) and benefit communities, environment and agriculture?

If you answered yes, you may be eligible for a small grant under the Victorian Rabbit Action Network Community Action Grants Program.

But get in quickly, because applications are closing at 5 pm on Wednesday, 23 August 2017.

Community groups can apply for grants of up to $5000 for one-off projects. For further information or to discuss your project, contact VRAN Grants Coordinator, Heidi Kleinert (heidi.kleinert@ecodev.vic.gov.au), or visit www.rabbitaction.com/forms for funding guidelines and application forms.
