2021 Victorian Junior Landcare and Biodiversity Grants
The Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning and Landcare Australia are partnering for a fourth year to fund the 2021 Victorian Junior Landcare and Biodiversity Grants for schools, kindergartens, childcare centres, Scouts, Girl Guides and youth groups.
Applications are now open for the 2021 grants that provide an opportunity to secure funding to engage young Victorians in outdoor, hands-on, on-ground projects and environmental learning activities that provide both environmental and educational outcomes, as well as health and social benefits.
The 2021 Victorian Junior Landcare and Biodiversity Grants of up to $5,000 each (ex-GST) are available.
Victorian schools and other eligible organisations are invited to apply for a 2021 Victorian Junior Landcare and Biodiversity Grant of up to $5,000 (ex-GST), for projects that focus on:
• Improving biodiversity through the development, improvement or restoration of habitat for Victoria’s native plants (flora) and animals (fauna), and/or
• Educating, involving and engaging young people in valuing and actively caring for Victoria’s natural environment.
Projects can be either direct-action projects (with an on-ground component) or in-direct action projects (with an education component), or a mixture of both.
See below for tips and information about how to apply, including downloading the Grant Guidelines and Criteria.
We also suggest that you have a look at case studies from a few of the completed projects from previous Victorian Junior Landcare and Biodiversity Grants.
