Funding Opportunities Available
This is a summary of funding opportunties that are available to Neerim & District Landcare Group members (depending on which catchment you live in). These funding opportunites may also be available to non members - please enquire with individual Project Managers.
Most of the funding available is for standard fencing and revegetation type projects however there is also funding available for a wide range of other land improvement type projects as well as for training and courses.
We will try to keep this page as up to date as possible, but funding often changes within very short timeframes so we would advise you to contact the various Project Managers to determine if the funding is still available. If you hear of any other funding opportunities available please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org
