Volunteers helping to protect and restore Victoria’s land and environment can now apply for a
funding boost, thanks to the Victorian Government.

Minister for Energy, Environment and Climate Change, Lily D’Ambrosio has opened the latest round
of the Victorian Landcare Grants, with $2.55 million funding available to Landcare and environmental
volunteering groups.

Groups and networks can apply for project grants of up to $30,000 for on-ground works, education
and capacity building projects that help to improve Victoria’s environment for future generations.
Support grants of up to $500 are also available for new and existing groups and networks to assist
with operating costs for Landcare and environmental volunteering across the state.

This funding will be delivered through Victoria’s 10 catchment management authorities (CMAs),
demonstrating the important environmental outcomes that can be achieved through collaboration
between CMAs, environmental groups, local communities, and the government.

Corangamite CMA Regional Landcare Coordinator Elisia Dowling said, we encourage all of the
Landcare groups across our Region to submit an application and apply for funding.
“These volunteers are working hard all year round to ensure everyone can enjoy a healthy
environment. This funding boost will make a world of difference for the on-ground outcomes that can
be achieved” continued Mrs Dowling.

Applications close 5pm Wednesday 16 June.
