Victorian Junior Landcare and Biodiversity Grants - Close 31 July 2020

The Department of Environment, Land Water & Planning (DELWP) and Landcare Australia are partnering for a third year to fund the 2020 Victorian Junior Landcare and Biodiversity Grants.

These grants are for schools (primary or secondary), kindergartens, childcare centres, Scouts or Girl Guides or youth groups, youth environmental volunteer groups and Junior Landcare groups in Victoria.

Applications are now open for the 2020 grants that provide an opportunity to secure funding to engage young Victorians in outdoor, hands-on, on-ground projects and environmental learning activities that provide both environmental and educational outcomes, as well as health and social benefits.

The 2020 Victorian Junior Landcare and Biodiversity Grants of up to $5,000 each (ex-GST) are available for projects that focus on:

• Improving biodiversity through the development, improvement or restoration of habitat for Victoria’s native plants (flora) and animals (fauna), and/or

• Educating, involving and engaging young people in valuing and actively caring for Victoria’s natural environment.

Projects can be either direct-action projects (with an on-ground component) or in-direct action projects (with an education component), or a mixture of both.

Applications close on Friday, 31 July 2020 and projects must be completed by 14 May 2021.
