Victorian Landcare Facilitator Program extended

Victorian Landcare Faciliator Program - Update 19/11/20

The Victorian Government is extending contracts for existing Landcare Facilitators and Regional Landcare Coordinators to 30 June 2021.

These contract extensions will ensure continuity of employment for the facilitators and coordinators who play a vital role in supporting the work of Victorian Landcare and environmental volunteer groups.

Following a review of the Victorian Landcare Facilitator Program, the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP) had planned to run an application process for facilitator roles before the end of 2020 but this has been delayed due to various factors, particularly coronavirus (COVID-19). 

An application process for organisations that want to employ a Landcare Facilitator beyond 30 June 2021 will be run in early 2021. Following this application process, new contracts will be in place for facilitators by 1 July 2021.

DELWP will contact funding recipients soon regarding contract variations to 30 June 2021.
