Natural Resource Management Office

Welcome

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.

State NRM Program

Announced in May 2014 the Western Australian Government is investing an additional $24 million to continue the State NRM Program until March 2019. Up to $19.2 million (80 per cent) of the funding is approved through Royalties for Regions and up to $4.8 million (20 per cent) is approved through State Consolidated Funds.

Two types of community grants are available through the State NRM Program:
