About Us
The Department for Environment and Water aims to help South Australians conserve, sustain and prosper.
In South Australia we have a unique system of natural resources management boards that work in partnership with us to fulfil our roles and deliver services across eight natural resource management regions. Through the boards we develop meaningful relationships with the community and increase our shared knowledge and understanding about natural resources. We encourage debate and share the decision-making and accountability for choices made.
Current Grants & Funding
The Department for Environment and Water is currently offering the following grants:
AMLR NRM Board 2019-20 Community Environment Grants - The Adelaide and Mount Lofty Ranges Natural Resources Management Board Community Environment Grants aim to promote the sustainable management of our natural resources and deliver projects that improve community capacity, awareness and education of the natural resources in our region.

All projects must incorporate a community engagement or capacity building element in the project, with a focus on improving the skills of the group members.
