Landcare Assistance Program (LAP)
The Landcare Assistance Program is a small annual grant that supports group operational costs and insurance. (It is not available to Individual Members)
Landcare Tasmania delivers the Landcare Assistance Program to support member group core costs and to cover insurance. The funds are generously provided by the Tasmanian Government. The grant amount varies from year to year depending on number of groups that apply, and insurance costs.
Member groups apply for the LAP Grant and Insurance each year on their membership renewal form.

Tasmanian Landcare Fund
Landcare Tasmania is a registered Deductible Gift Recipient organisation, authorised to operate the Tasmanian Landcare Fund.
Or to put it simply - we can accept donations to the TLF and these can be tax-deductible to you, the donor. The TLF was established in 2004.
Below are some of our major donors and supporters.
But remember that anyone can donate, no matter how small, to support the continuing work of community Landcare in Tasmania!
JM Roberts Charitable Trust
The major donor to the TLF has been the JM Roberts Charitable Trust. This was established by the late John Roberts as a bequest in his will, to deliver ongoing support for Landcare projects.
The Roberts Trust has been the largest donor to the TLF, with $600,000 of donations since 2004 used to support important on ground work on farms, in schools and with community groups across the State.
When the next round opens, we will invite Landcare members who have submitted to the Project Bank to complete a full TLF application.
