The Victorian Junior Landcare and Biodiversity Grants provide support of up to $5,000 to Victorian Schools, kindergartens, childcare centres, Scouts/Guides and youth groups.

Funding is provided for projects that engage young Victorians in outdoor, hands-on, on-ground projects, and environmental learning activities.

These projects provide both environmental and educational outcomes, as well as health and social benefits.

    Funded projects will allow Victorian young people to:

    • Connect with and value their local natural environment 
    • Increase their awareness of the importance of a healthy environment and what it means to their own health and wellbeing
    • Learn more about how they can contribute to improving the health of Victoria’s environment
    • Care for Victoria’s natural environment by taking part in projects that restore, protect or enhance habitat for native plants and animals

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

The grants are run by Landcare Australia, as part of its Junior Landcare program, in partnership with the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning.

Victorian Junior Landcare and Biodiversity Grants - Recipients

113 schools and youth organisations will share $409,500 in funding that will help young people across the state protect Victoria's environment and biodiversity, through on-ground works and activities that provide both environmental and educational outcomes.
