Landcare relieved at the Government’s on-going financial commitment of $1.1 billion
11 MAY 2017 – The National Landcare Network and Landcare Australia welcome the Federal Government’s allocation of $1 billion to the National Landcare Programme. This secures funding for the five-year programme commencing in the 2019 fiscal year.
The additional $100 million funding that was announced in December 2016 has been allocated for on-ground projects by Landcare groups and sustainable agriculture grants, in addition to being used for new Indigenous Protected Areas. The funds will also support the work of the National Landcare Network and Landcare Australia.
