The Victorian Government is providing funding of up to $410,000 for the 2019 Victorian Junior Landcare and Biodiversity Grants.
Schools, kindergartens, childcare centres, Scouts, Girl Guides and youth groups are eligible to apply for grants of up $5,000 for projects with a focus on:
• improving biodiversity through the development, improvement or restoration of habitat for Victoria’s native plants and animals, and
• educating and engaging young people to value and actively care for Victoria’s natural environment.
The grants are for either direct-action (i.e. projects with an on-ground component) or in-direct action (i.e. projects with an environmental education component), or a mixture of both.
Applications close: Friday 21 June 2019.
