FBA is a not-for-profit organization and receives operational funds through various Australian and Queensland government programs as well as one-off grants, fee-for-service and occasional bequeaths.

We work closely with funding bodies and strategic partners to ensure resources are invested in projects and activities that align with National, State and regional objectives, provide best value for money and return the greatest benefits to the Fitzroy environment and community. We encourage expressions of interest  from organisations and investors keen to establish projects that improve natural resources and sustainable practices in the Fitzroy Region.

Our primary funders:

Australian Government

Two key funding initiatives helping Fitzroy communities and land managers look after our natural resources are the National Landcare Program and Reef Trust.

Queensland Government

Funding from the Natural Resource Management Investment Program is helping our region achieve State environmental objectives.
