Logan and Scenic Rim wildlife carers inundated with victims of the bushfire crisis can now access funding to help nurse the animals back to health.
Another $250,000 will be provided for community-based volunteer wildlife carers and care groups, on top of $6 million earmarked for wildlife hospitals.
Jordan MP Charis Mullen said more than 700 community groups would be eligible to receive the funding to help care for the animals.
"We have all been devastated by the human impact of these disasters," Ms Mullen said.
"But there is also the significant impact on wildlife."
the state government was working closely with the Queensland Wildlife Rehabilitation Council (QWRC) and the South East Queensland Wildlife Hospital Network to get their expert advice.
"As a result, these funds will go directly to where they are needed most," Ms Mullen said.
Of the $250,000, $120,000 will be divided between the Currumbin Wildlife Hospital, RSPCA Wildlife Hospital and Australia Zoo Wildlife Hospital to help cover the costs of caring for animals being brought in for treatment.
The remaining $130,000 will be provided to individual carers and wildlife care groups. Eligible individual carers who can apply for up to $2000 and eligible care groups can apply for up to $5000.
Applications for funding will open on January 29, with grants ongoing until all funding is allocated.
Interested applicants are encouraged to apply as soon as the round opens.
"With 67.4 per cent of Queensland still drought-declared, and to date around 2.5 million hectares impacted by the recent bushfires, the demand on wildlife hospitals and carers has increased," Ms Mullen said.
"This new funding means further support for the purchase of vital equipment and supplies for the rescue and care of sick and injured wildlife.
"Valuable medical supplies, including saline solution and pain relief, feed formula for sick and injured animals, and fuel for the carers who often use their own vehicles to transport these animals to and from wildlife hospitals are all supported by this grant."
Grant program guidelines and the application form will be published on the Department of Environment and Science's website on January 29 at qld.gov.au/environment/pollution/funding/community-sustainability
