June 21, 2022

Supporting Landcare and environmental volunteering groups and networks across Victoria.

Minister for Energy, Environment and Climate Change, Lily D’Ambrosio has opened the latest round of the Victorian Landcare Grants, with $3.35 million funding available to 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. 

Grants of up to $20,000 are available for on-ground projects and support grants of up to $500 are available to help with group administration and running costs.

The grants are open to environmental volunteering groups, including Landcare groups and networks, Friends groups, Conservation Management Networks, Committees of Management, Coastcare groups and Aboriginal groups to support the important work they do in protecting and restoring our land and environment.

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 Stephanie Rosestone 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 Rosestone.

The Victorian Landcare Grants support the implementation of Protecting Victoria’s Environment – Biodiversity 2037, which is Victoria’s 20-year plan to stop the decline of our native plants and animals and improve our natural environment and Victorians Volunteering for Nature – Environmental Volunteering Plan.
