Landcare Australia Special Projects Grants 2016

The Landcare Australia Special Projects Grants 2016 are intended to support Landcare and farming groups in undertaking projects and activities that protect environmental assets, address priority issues and improve the health of the environment.

Groups are invited to apply for a grant of up to $15,000 to support projects that focus on one or more of the following areas::

–   Biodiversity

–   Sustainable agriculture

These grants are funded by Landcare Australia’s Workplace Giving Program, an initiative that allows individuals to make regular pre-tax donations to Landcare Australia through their employer’s payroll system.  These generous Workplace Giving donations are combined and then applied by Landcare Australia in support of a range of activities, including distribution to Landcare groups across Australia to maximise on-ground environmental benefits.
