Supporting young Victorians to care for our natural environment


The Victorian Junior Landcare and Biodiversity Grants provide funding for projects that involve and educate young people in valuing and actively caring for Victoria’s biodiversity and natural environment.


In 2024 funding of up to $450,000 is available for the Victorian Junior Landcare and Biodiversity Grants. Since 2018, the Victorian Government has invested $3 million in the Victorian Junior Landcare and Biodiversity Grants to engage young people in environmental projects and learning activities.

Eligible applicants can apply for grants of up to $5,000 (excluding GST).


The grants are open to all schools, kindergartens, childcare centres, Scouts, Girl Guides, youth groups, and Junior Landcare groups in Victoria.

Cross-border schools with Victorian students are eligible to apply.

Priorities for funding - focus areas

These grants provide young Victorians with an opportunity to participate in biodiversity focused projects under two focus areas. Projects can focus on one of the two areas or a combination of both. Biodiversity includes the variety of plants, animals, insects, and all living things in our natural environment.

Focus Area 1: Biodiversity focused education activities: educating, involving, and engaging young people in valuing and actively caring for Victoria’s biodiversity and natural environment.

Focus Area 2: Biodiversity focused on-ground projects: engaging young people to improve biodiversity through creating, enhancing, or restoring habitat for Victoria’s native plants and animals.

These grants support the delivery of Protecting Victoria's Environment - Biodiversity 2037, Victoria’s 20-year plan to stop the decline of our native plants and animals and improve our natural environment.

The grants are funded through DEECA’s Victorian Landcare Program and administered by Landcare Australia as part of its national Junior Landcare Grants program.
