2021 Victorian Junior Landcare and Biodiversity Grants
For the fourth year, Landcare Australia has partnered with the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning to offer the 2021 Victorian Junior Landcare and Biodiversity Grants.
This year the Victorian Government is providing up to $450,000 for these fantastic grants. Applications for the 2021 Victorian Junior Landcare and Biodiversity Grants closed on 30 April.
Thank you to everyone who submitted an application. We will be announcing the successful grant recipients in June.
These grants are for Victorian primary and secondary schools, kindergartens, childcare centres, Scouts, Girl Guides, youth groups, youth environmental volunteer groups and Junior Landcare groups.
The grants provide an opportunity to secure up to $5,000 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 grants also contribute to the targets of Protecting Victoria’s Environment – Biodiversity 2037 – the Victorian Government’s plan to stop the decline of our native plants and animals and improve our natural environment.
Schools (primary or secondary), preschools, kindergartens, childcare centres, Scouts, Girl Guides, youth groups, youth environmental volunteer groups and Junior Landcare groups in Victoria.
