The Victorian Landcare Grants in Corangamite CMA Region


Through the 2024 Victorian Landcare Grants, $3.95 million is available for Landcare and other environmental volunteer groups and networks that are working to protect and restore land and the environment. 

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
– Capability building activities
– Community education and engagement
• To sustain Landcare and other environmental volunteer groups and networks by providing support grants, particularly for groups whose continuing existence will benefit from this support.


A total of $3.55 million is available for project and support grants across Victoria.

Project grants

Project Grants of up to $20,000 are available may be provided to eligible groups and networks 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.
