Victorian Energy, Environment and Climate Change Minister Lily D’Ambrosio has announced that environmental volunteer groups can now access grants up to $20000 as part of the 2018-19 Victorian Landcare Grants.

The grants are available to Landcare, Friends of Coastcare and other environment volunteer 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, which will co-ordinate applications from Landcare and other environmental volunteer groups and networks.

The Labor Government also supports Landcare with funding for 78 facilitators, 10 regional co-ordinators and communications including the Victorian Landcare magazine, Victorian Landcare awards and Landcare Gateway website.

The Victorian Landcare Grants support the implementation of Protecting Victoria’s Environment — Biodiversity 2037, the Labor Government’s long-term plan to protect our environment.
