Community and volunteers

Supporting and empowering community members to maintain the region’s natural assets is core to our driving mission.

One of the many ways FBA achieves this is through community grants and bursaries. Each year, we seek out community groups across our region who have a passion and a vision to safeguard the natural assets they hold close to their heart.

Projects should work to achieve the following outcomes:

  • Benefit community and environment
  • Improve ecological values
  • Increase community awareness, participation, connectedness and stewardship
  • Improve land management and sustainability
  • Contribute to achieving goals and targets under Central Queensland’s Sustainability Strategy 2030

Current opportunities...

  • 2023 FBA Community Bursaries - Applications open (subject to availability of funds)
  • Closing Date: 31/03/2023

FBA’s Regional Indigenous Participation Plan and Community Participation Plan inform FBA’s various means of engagement. FBA recognises the value of effective engagement and the importance of productive stakeholder relations in achieving the best possible natural resource management outcomes. These plans are reviewed on an ongoing basis. It is anticipated that a review will commence in 2023.
