Local projects & groups funded in Victorian Landcare Grants
24 Landcare projects and 28 support grants will be funded in the Glenelg Hopkins Catchment through the 2021 Victorian Landcare Grants program.
The Victorian Government provides funding to support 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.
A total of $4.09 million was provided for 206 project grants and 282 support grants across Victoria in 2021.
Grants were awarded to 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.
Project grants are 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 are for or assistance with costs such as insurance, incorporation and operational needs, or meetings and events or newsletters, websites, and other communication.
Projects will be completed by 30 November 2022.
