Many community NRM groups find it hard to access grants because they are not incorporated. Funding bodies generally prefer to deal with an experienced incorporated legal entity rather than an unincorporated group of individuals. Terrain NRM is in a position to assist groups by auspicing their project proposal.
Terrain's Operation Support Officer Marin Haldane says, "It’s not something we do every day but in certain circumstances it can be of great benefit to the community and perfectly align with what Terrain is all about; helping NRM community groups succeed in the long term and supporting hard working people with passion and drive to achieve positive NRM outcomes.”
