About the program

The Public Reserves Management Fund Program (PRMFP) provides financial support for the development, maintenance and improvement of public reserves. Grant and loan funding can be applied for through the PRMFP.

The PRMFP funds a diverse range of activities each year in the following categories:

  • general development, maintenance and protection activities on any eligible reserve
  • pest and weed projects on Crown land.

The PRMFP is a self-sustaining program that is supported by income generated from loan interest, leases and licences on Crown land.
