East Coast Forestry Project Changes Name and Makes Improvements

In the Ministry for Primary Industries latest Sustainable Forestry Bulletin, improvements in the East Coast Grant Scheme were explained. The changes include:

  • removal of the requirement for a convenant;
  • earlier payments to prevent the need for bridging finance;
  • extended establishment period for more planting flexibility;
  • options of existing scheme participants to transfer to new agreements;
  • the name of the scheme has been changed from the East Coast Forestry Project to the Erosion Control Funding Programme (ECFP)
