The NSW Wildlife Council is the peak representative organisation for wildlife groups and individual rehabilitators licensed by the NSW Department of Planning and Environment (NSW National Parks & Wildlife Service). The objective of the Grants Program is to increase the capacity for individual wildlife rehabilitators, and groups in exceptional circumstances at the discretion of the management committee, to purchase materials to build animal enclosures or equipment needed to rehabilitate native Australian wildlife within the state of NSW.

Grant applications must be submitted to the Grants Committee of the NSW Wildlife Council between 1 July and 31 July 2023.

Grant applications need to be in writing on the approved NWC Wildlife Rehabilitation Grant Application Form. Applications for grants will be evaluated based on 3 criteria: Need; Excellence and Value for Money. The grant decision will be made in a manner determined by the NSW Wildlife Council Management Committee.

Grants of amounts from $500 to $4000 will be provided to the applications voted most worthy. Applications are open to NWC groups and individuals; any NWC Group may be awarded a maximum of 2 individual member grants and 1 group grant; an independent general licensee may be awarded 1 grant.
