Funding Opportunities

Tasmanian Landcare FundTasmanian Landcare Fund

Since 2004, over $600,000 of donations to the fund have been used to support our members' important on-ground work on farms, in schools and with community groups across lutriwita/Tasmania. We typically run one grant round per year, but accept project proposals to our Project Bank at any time. When the next round opens, we will shortlist projects from Landcare members who have submitted to the Project Bank, and invite those shortlisted to complete a full TLF application.
