Natural Resource Management Office


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

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 economic, environmental, social and cultural benefits to Western Australians.

Over 850 projects have been supported with over $87 million of grants since 2009.
