Managing Fruit Fly – Regional Grants Program

The Managing Fruit Fly – Regional Grants Program will assist in the delivery of a coordinated and collaborative approach to fruit fly management across Victoria in alignment with the state-wide Action Plan.

The Regional Grants Program will empower regional Victorian industries and communities to take the lead on fruit fly management in their local area through the development and delivery of state aligned, regionally specific action plans which include the roles and responsibilities of all stakeholders (industry, community, local and state governments) at the local level.

Grants will be awarded to groups or organisations, to support regional co-ordination of fruit fly management activities, the delivery of localised on ground community control programs, and local communication and engagement activities to raise awareness of, and increase participation in, fruit fly management by all stakeholders in regional Victoria.

For further information, or to find out if your group is eligible see the Agriculture Victoria website.

Applications close 5:00pm on Sunday 18th December 2016.

The grants program is administered by the Victorian Department of Economic Development, Jobs, Transport and Resources (DEDJTR).
