The Tropical North Queensland Drought Resilience Adoption and Innovation Hub is seeking eligible applicants to work with to build drought resilience across the TNQ region.

The Tropical North Queensland Drought Resilience Grants scheme will fund up to $100,000 (GST exclusive) for each project that can demonstrate tangible benefits to one or more of the TNQ Drought Hub Priorities within the themes of:

  • Drought and climate change adaptation
  • Land and soil management
  • Innovation and technology
  • Enhancing skills and human capacity
  • Enhancing Sustainable Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Resilience.

Projects are to be delivered by June 2024 and applicants must be capable of entering into a legally binding agreement with James Cook University.

This funding aims to improve drought resilience for farms and agribusinesses, and towns and communities where agriculture is a strong contributor to the economy and society. The TNQ Drought Hub is already working with many groups and organisations, but we know there are many more with great ideas. We want to ensure that everyone involved in agriculture across the TNQ region has the opportunity to showcase their ideas and approaches ready for the next drought.

Applications close Sunday 2nd July 2023, 11:59pm AEST.
