Landcare Australia’s Bushfire Recovery Grants 2020 will support Landcare and environmental volunteer groups and networks located in bushfire affected areas across Australia.

The program aims to support the urgent needs of the Landcare community to restore essential wildlife habitat, shelterbelts and fences, protect our waterways, manage weeds and feral animals, work with Traditional Owner groups and run local community workshops among other recovery activities.

Grants of up to $15,000 (excluding GST) are available. At least 15 projects will be awarded funding from this initial round. It is anticipated this will be the first round of funding from Landcare Australia and that there will be others as more funds are received.

The grants can be used for fire recovery activities such as running community workshops and managing pests and weeds.
