Tasmanian Bushfire Mitigation Grants Program (TBMGP)

Tasmanian Bushfire Mitigation Grants Program (TBMGP)

The TBMGP was a competitive grants program that aims to support the implementation of the National Bushfire Mitigation Programme (NBMP) in this State. The TBMGP promotes and enables the implementation of long term bushfire mitigation strategies and better fuel reduction programs in Tasmania, including:

  • Effective land management strategies and practices that result in better fuel reduction;
  • Construction and maintenance of fire trails and associated accessibility measures;
  • Implementation of cost-effective activities that reduce the impact of severe bushfires and promote community resilience, such as support for volunteers;
  • Generation of scientific information, including hazard mapping, to develop best-practice strategies for bushfire mitigation and mitigating the effects of bushfires on communities; or
  • Improving and hardening of critical infrastructure.

Note: Applications for the 2017-2018 round of the TBMGP are now closed.
