In a major step forward for the 20 Million Trees Programme, the Australian Government today released a Request for Tender, seeking one or more service providers to undertake large-scale revegetation projects across Australia.
The Australian Government’s 20 Million Trees Programme is a key election commitment, providing $50 million over four years to deliver tree planting projects across the country.
The programme will re-establish green corridors and urban forests across Australia, increasing and improving habitat for our threatened species and creating green spaces to improve the liveability of our cities and towns.
The Request for Tender is seeking service providers to work with the Australian Government to help deliver large-scale tree planting projects across the country. Service providers will work with community groups and landholders to deliver the Programme.
Service providers are encouraged to apply to make a difference to the environment and communities across Australia.
Information about the 20 Million Trees Request for Tender is available on the AusTender website.
The Request for Tender follows on from the recent 20 Million Trees Programme small competitive grants round. Grants of between $20 000 and $100 000 will help local community groups and other organisations start rolling out projects at a local level soon.
Successful applicants for the 20 Million Trees small grants are expected to be announced shortly.
The 20 Million Trees initiative is an important part of the Australian Government’s National Landcare Programme and will deliver real environmental benefits to local communities.
