Your NRM Region
As part of your grant application you will need to indicate your NRM Region.
But what does NRM mean?
NRM is the acronym for Natural Resource Management. Natural resource management regions are based on catchments or bioregions. The Australian Government, in association with state and territory governments, has identified 56 regions covering all of Australia.
So how do i know which NRM Region i am in?

History of the regions
The boundaries for each of the 56 regions were established in agreements between Commonwealth, state and territory governments between December 2002 and June 2004.
The bilateral agreements were signed as part of the second phase of the Natural Heritage Trust.
Under Caring for our Country there have been minor changes to some boundaries.
Regional boundaries may change throughout the life-cycle of Caring for our Country under state-controlled legislation and regional groups.
