The Reef Trust Partnership - Traditional Owner Healthy Water Grants 2.0 Program is a competitive grants program which provides $4 million to eligible Traditional Owners to build capabilities, increase skills and training opportunities, strengthen partnerships and undertake healthy water projects within the Great Barrier Reef Catchment that will help protect the Great Barrier Reef.
