The Federal Government is calling for expressions of interest from natural resource management practitioners, scientists, researchers  and members of the community to provide input into a number of grant funding processes.


Applications are now open for the role of Community Assessors who will be responsible for assessing applications when competitive grant applications are received


Federal Minister for Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry Senator Joe Ludwig said that community assessors play a vital role in helping decide where funds should be invested under a variety of Australian Government environmental and sustainable natural resource and agriculture management initiatives.


“As a community assessor, you will be part of a team evaluating applications for government funding under the Caring for our Country initiative and, for the first time, under the Securing a Clean Energy Future – Land Sector package,” Minister Ludwig said.


Community assessors will receive comprehensive training before each assessment process they are involved in and will be paid for their time and travel.
