Victorian Landcare Grants are open

Do you have an idea for a Landcare project? Grants now available for Landcare projects for Landcare and community based NRM groups.

The Victorian Government is providing funding to support community-based natural resource management (NRM) groups and networks undertaking on-ground works, education and capacity building projects to protect and restore the land and environment. Grants will fund projects that address local, regional and state land and environment priorities through delivery of on-ground works, capacity building activities and community education and engagement, and to sustain community-based NRM groups and networks by providing support and start-up grants particularly for groups whose continuing existence will benefit from this support.

Grants include project support grants (up to $20,000), support grants (up to $500) and start up grants (up to $500).
