Natural Resource Management Office


In 2009, the Western Australian Government established the State's Natural Resource Management (NRM) Program.

The Program builds community capacity in natural resource management, supports on-ground local community action, leverages volunteer effort and other resources and maintains goodwill and engagement developed over many years.

The program assists to maintain or enhance the condition of the State's land, water (terrestrial and marine) and biodiversity assets so that they continue to provide environmental, social, cultural and economic benefits to Western Australians.

Over 1000 projects have been supported with over $100 million of grants since 2009.
