NSW Wildlife Friendly Vets - Small Asset Grant 2021

The key goal of the grant program is to enable veterinary organisations (clinics, mobile clinics and hospitals) that support wildlife rescue and rehabilitation to acquire an incubator/humidicrib to be used in the treatment of native animals.

The program aims to achieve the following outcomes:

  • Increase the number of wildlife that can be successfully treated in veterinary organisations in NSW.
  • Decrease the cost of providing wildlife care to the vet practice.

The total amount of funds available for allocation under this grant program is $50,000. Funds for this round are intended to be spent during 2021/2022 financial year (to June 30 2022) and will be allocated according to demonstrated need. 

There is a maximum limit of $3,000 per application. Organisations can apply for the cost of one incubator only, up to the maximum amount. 

Please note: If successful, payment will be made by FNPW after purchase is made and receipt is uploaded in your Milestone 2 obligation.

Funding is provided though the Wildlife Heroes project, supported by the New South Wales Government through its Environmental Trust.


Priority will be given to:

  • Organisations that have not previously received funding from FNPW
  • Organisations that treat a large volume of wildlife annually
  • Organisations that are willing to participate in a future data collection trial for wildlife rescue through the Wildlife Heroes program.

Please see the grant guidelines for further information.


Applications are open until February 18th, 2022 at 5pm.

The following documentation is needed to complete the application:
• ABN or ATO supplier form;
