Volunteers helping to protect and restore Victoria’s land and environment can now apply for a funding boost through the Victorian Landcare Grants 2019-20. Minister for Energy, Environment and Climate Change Lily D’Ambrosio today officially opened the latest round of the Victorian Landcare Grants, with $1.76 million in funding available to environment volunteer groups.
Landcare, Friends of Coastcare and other environment volunteer groups can apply for project grants of up to $20,000 for on-ground works, education and capacity building projects that help to improve Victoria’s environment for future generations.
Support grants of $500 are also available for new and existing groups and networks to assist with operating costs and provide a stable base for Landcare and environmental volunteering across Victoria.
This funding will be delivered through Victoria’s 10 catchment management authorities (CMAs), highlighting the great environmental outcomes that can be achieved through cooperation between CMAs, environment groups, local communities and the government.
Applications are close at 5pm on Wednesday 12 June 2019.
