Flying Fox Grants Program

The Flying Fox Grants Program assisted councils to manage flying fox camps, consistent with the Flying Fox Camp Management Policy 2015.

Funded through the Office of Environment and Heritage (OEH) and administered by Local Government NSW, this $1 million program was made available to address identified flying fox management issues facing NSW councils. 

The Program objectives sought to assist councils:

  • Implement emergency flying fox camp management measures where there are significant community impacts (Stream 1)
  • Prepare flying fox camp management plans (Stream 2)
  • Implement approved actions in flying fox camp management plans (Stream 3)

Grants awarded under each stream and brief descriptions are available at the links below:
