Grants for environmental projects
Grants may be available for environmental projects from a range of government and non-government bodies including:
- the Victorian Government Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (often known as DELWP)
- the Australian Government Department of the Environment and Energy
- some private organisations.
You can also find information at:
- Grants and programs (www.vic.gov.au)
- the Victorian Landcare Gateway website or from your local Landcare facilitator.
Alternatively, you can use a search engine to search for grants. Try search terms such as 'environmental grants' to see if any new grants have become available.
Disaster recovery work
Following natural disasters, such as flood, storm and fire, Landmate crews may be available to provide recovery works to restore the environment.
Allocation and prioritisation of work is organised by the local council or shire, state government (DELWP) co-ordinator or by independent disaster recovery bodies such as Blaze Aid
Please note that where private landowners have insurance coverage that provides for repair of the damage, Landmate is not able to offer disaster recovery works.
More information is available about disaster recovery works from:
- Catchment management authorities (CMAs) - see below for individual websites
- Councils and shires - see below for individual websites.
