Applications for the 2022-23 Reservoirs Partnership Program are now open.

Community groups can apply for up to $10,000 in funding to host events or projects at South Australia’s reservoir reserves. The program is open to not-for-profit organisations looking to connect communities with nature and recreation.

To apply please read the criteria and fill out the application form. Applications close 5pm, Friday 2 September.

Our Reservoirs Partnership Program supports grassroots events and projects held at our reservoir reserves and managed by South Australian not-for-profit organisations. They champion conservation, education and recreation, and help connect communities with our reservoir reserves for their enjoyment and preservation.

In its inaugural year (2020-21), the program supported nature-based activities for school-aged, disadvantaged children, kayaking and other paddling activities for community groups, a nature-based adventure triathlon, and a ‘come and try’ experience for people of all abilities to enjoy the reservoir reserves.
