Barwon South West Fire Recovery

Expressions of interest close Friday 6th September

A new round of funding is available for landholders to replant and protect waterway vegetation burnt in the 2018 St Patrick’s Day fires.

The Corangamite Catchment Management Authority has partnered with Heytesbury District Landcare Network to assist landholders with fencing, weed control and revegetation of riparian areas. The Barwon South West Fires Project is supported by the Victorian Government.

The total pool for this second round of funding is $173,000. Any landholders with waterway frontage that was affected in the St Patrick’s Day fires are eligible to apply.
