2021 Victorian Landcare Grants closing date extended to Monday 21 June

Due to continuing impacts in many areas of the state from power outages, flooding and storm damage, the closing date for the 2021 Victorian Landcare Grants and 2021 Group Health Survey is extended to 5pm Monday 21 June.

The Victorian Government is providing $2.55 million funding for project and support grants across the state.

Project grants

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.

Support grants

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.
