The Victorian Junior Landcare and Biodiversity Grants provide up to $5,000 for environmental projects that connect young Victorians with the environment.
Victorian schools, kindergartens, childcare centres, scouts, guides and youth groups can apply for funding.
The Victorian Junior Landcare and Biodiversity Grants will fund projects that focus on:
- Improving habitat for Victoria's native plants and animals
- Educating young people about the environment and getting them to value it and care for it
Projects can either be on-ground, educational or a mixture of both.
They will be good for nature and for the young people's education, health and social connection.
Projects funded by the grants in previous years included:
- Planting indigenous gardens
- Improving wetlands
- Creating a frog bog
- Connecting young children with nature in their front yard
- and others.
Protecting Victoria's Environment - Biodiversity 2037 is our long-term plan to stop the decline of our native plants and animals. These grants are one action helping us achieve that.
The grants are funded by the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning through the Victorian Landcare Program.
Landcare Australia is running the grants process as part of its Junior Landcare program.
Projects must follow current health guidelines.
Applications close: 3pm Friday 31 July 2020
