Round Two Announced
Successful applicants round two of the Community Environment Grants Program have now been rewarded.
The Victorian Government is providing funding to support Landcare and environmental volunteering groups and networks for on-ground works, education, and capacity-building projects that protect, enhance, and restore our land and natural environment.
A total of $2.55 million is available for project and support grants across Victoria. Up to $30,000 is available for on-ground works, capacity building activities, community education and engagement that protects, or improves natural assets such as native vegetation, native fauna, waterways, wetlands, and soils. Up to $500 is available for assistance with costs such as insurance, incorporation and operational needs, or meetings and events or newsletters, websites, and other communication.
Grants are open to all Victorian Landcare and environmental volunteering groups and networks that have a focus on on-ground land and natural environment improvement work.
This includes Landcare groups and networks, ‘Friends of’ groups, Conservation Management Networks, Committees of Management, Coastcare groups and Aboriginal groups and organisations working on Country.
