Environmental grants open
Member for Lowan Emma Kealy is encouraging volunteers helping to protect and restore Victoria’s land and environment to consider applying for money in the latest round of Victorian Landcare Grants.
Ms Kealy said environmental volunteer groups could apply for project grants of up to $20,000 for on-ground works, education and capacitybuilding projects that helped improve Victoria’s environment. She said support grants of $500 were also available to help with operation costs and to provide a stable base for Landcare and environmental volunteering across Victoria.
Applications close 5pm on June 12. People can get more information online at www. environment.vic.gov.au/grants/victorian-land care-grants-2019-20.
