Up to $10,000 will be available to support volunteer fire brigades and other relevant organisations with their fire prevention, preparedness, and response activities.

The program will prioritise applications that align with the FPC’s priorities linked to its softwood plantation management; increase understanding about fire management in plantations; and deliver the greatest benefits to local communities.

Applications for this round of grants will be accepted until 5.00 pm on Friday, 26 May 2023.
