The NFVP was established in 2004, working with landowners to provide for the long-term management of non-forest vegetation communities, providing benefits for conservation and primary production. Applications for the NFVP closed in mid 2009. The program had a particular focus on threatened native grasslands.
The following brochures were developed during the Non-Forest Vegetation Project, and provide information on Tasmania's native grasslands, different types of grasslands and the Non-Forest Vegetation Project. These brochures are provided for information only.
