The Port Phillip and Westernport CMA plays a key role in the coordination and administration of environmental funding within the Port Phillip and Western Port region.
The PPWCMA administers delivery of funding from the Australian Government’s National Landcare Programme and the Victorian Government’s Victorian Landcare Program within the region, as well as various partner and private sector investment.
The PPWCMA also monitors and evaluates the environmental impact of these contributions and reports on their outcomes.
Port Phillip & Westernport CMA Community Grants
Each year the PPWCMA offers grants to Landcare groups and networks, community groups and volunteer-based organisations through the Port Phillip & Westernport CMA Community Grants. The grants support these groups and assist with projects and activities that protect environmental assets, address priority issues and improve the health of the region’s environment.
The 2017-18 round of the Port Phillip & Westernport CMA Community Grants are now open and applications will be accepted until 25th September 2017.
