Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning

The Victorian Government Department of Environment, Land, Water & Planning (DELWP) provides support to Landcare Australia’s Victorian operations to assist Landcare Australia in developing partnerships with non-government funding providers and building capacity for the Victorian Landcare community.

This support contributes to Landcare Australia’s success in providing funding to a diverse range of Landcare projects across the state as well as showcasing inspirational Victorian Landcare stories to a wide audience through various media and communications activities.

In September 2018, DELWP and Landcare Australia launched the Victorian Junior Landcare and Biodiversity Grants Program. The grants of up to $5,000 each are delivered in partnership with Landcare Australia. They support primary and secondary schools, kindergartens, preschools, childcare centres, Scouts, girl guides and other youth groups. Specialist schools and groups working with culturally and linguistically diverse communities are also eligible. Click to read case studies for some of these completed projects

A second round of grants was offered in 2019. Between these two rounds, DELWP has funded 237 projects for a total of over $860,000. A third grants round is being planned.
