The Environmental Protection Agency has offered its support to the Ithaca Intact project, granting $34,700 in funding under the State Government's South East Queensland Healthy Waterways Strategy.

State member for Mount Coot-tha, Andrew Fraser, announced the funding on the 8th of May at the Lugg Street bushcare group site, Lugg Street, Bardon. The announcement coincided with a planting event at the site, attended by Ithaca Creek State School students and supported by Habitat Brisbane and SOWN.

The funding will assist SOWN to continue developing community partnerships and raising community awareness about the Ithaca Intact project, and to develop a tool-kit for future use by other community groups involved in inner-city waterway restoration projects.
