Community Landcare Grants build on the success of the earlier Community Action Grants initiative with a renewed focus on sustainable farming and fisheries, agricultural innovation and community capacity building. The grants make it possible for local community-based action, ensuring Australia’s agricultural base is sustainable, productive and resiliant.
Grants between $5,000 & $50,000 are available to:
- help build a skilled and capable Landcare community
- encourage community participation and engagement in Landcare
- share information and learnings in sustainable agricultural techniques
- reduce the spread of pest species, and
- encourage the adoption of improved sustainable land management practices.
Grants are open to local community based groups and professional farming systems groups, actively involved in NRM or sustainable agriculture activities.
