Victorian Landcare Grants 2018-19 now open

8 May 2018

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 our land and environment.

Previously delivered as  part of the Port Phillip & Westernport CMA Community Grants, the Victorian Landcare Grants 2018-19 are offering Project Grants of up to $20,000 and Support/Start‐up Grants of up to $500.

The objectives of the Victorian Landcare Grants are to:

Fund projects that address local, regional and state land and environment priorities through delivery of:

  • On-ground works
  • Capacity building activities
  • Community education and engagement

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.


The Victorian Landcare Grants are out earlier to enable a consistent approach across all CMA regions. Applications close 12pm on Tuesday 12 June 2018.

More details, including grant guidelines and the application form (via SmartyGrants) are available on the Community Grants page of this website.
