Nature Conservation Assistance Program

The Nature Conservation Assistance Program (NCAP) provides grant funding to landholders with properties of high conservation value. It helps establish bushland restoration projects to improve the native habitat on the property and contribute to the enhancement of the city's natural areas and biodiversity. NCAP is one of the landholder support programs we offer.
