Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning
The Victorian Government Department of Environment, Land, Water & Planning (DELWP) provides support to Landcare Australia’s Victorian operations to assist Landcare Australia in developing partnerships with the corporate sector.
This support has contributed to Landcare Australia’s success in delivering dollars in corporate support for a diverse range of Landcare projects across the state.
In 2018, DELWP increased its support for the Landcare Australia by providing over $400,000 of funding to 109 eligible projects for the 2018 Victorian Junior Landcare and Biodiversity Grants. This funding is supporting Victorian primary and secondary schools, kindergartens, preschools, childcare centres, scouts and guides and other youth groups and groups, including specialist schools and groups working with culturally and linguistically diverse communities.
DELWP has also assisted Landcare Australia to bring the National Landcare Conference to Melbourne in 2014 and again in 2016.
