AgForce is encouraging members to apply for new funding now open under the Land Restoration Fund.

Building on the success of Investment Round 1, this second round will see a further $25 million invested in carbon farming projects, with up to $5 million funding available per project.

Queensland farmers, landholders, land managers and First Nations peoples interested in developing a new carbon farming project (or entering the carbon farming industry) are invited to check their eligibility and apply.

The LRF has also partnered with CSIRO to build a tool to help Queensland landholders run a simple self-assessment of their property before starting an application.

The upgraded LOOC-C tool lets landholders map their properties and provides a five-star rating showing the likelihood of different benefits being available on the mapped area - benefits such as positive impacts to the Great Barrier Reef, threatened ecosystems and threatened species.

It also estimates how much carbon a project could store.

You can apply for financial support under the Carbon Farming Advice Rebate Program, which provides a rebate of up to $10,000 per person for professional fees.

A robust carbon farming industry will help to manage Queensland’s emissions, create regional jobs, support local economies and conserve our unique environment and wildlife.

Applications close 2pm Friday 8 October.
