Landcare Tasmania is delivering the Landcare Action Grants (LAG) Open Round on behalf of the Tasmanian Government. Round 1 applications open in June-July 2023. Landscape Restoration Projects and Community Projects are eligible.
Applications are open to all landholders, individuals, community groups and primary producers. A further application round may be opened in late 2023 subject to funding availability.
In Round 1, landscape restoration projects are a priority. This includes projects which protect and enhance on-farm native vegetation, including planting new areas of native vegetation, protecting habitat, and maintaining and improving ground cover.
Other community projects, such as weed removal, fencing, fire management regimes and habitat augmentation are also eligible for funding.
The themes for projects in this grant round are supporting enhanced land management practices, assisting the community to holistically manage natural and productive land and waterways, and providing opportunities for landholders to implement carbon farming initiatives.
Funding is available for projects between $5,000 and $50,000 that can be completed by June 2025. Those wishing to learn more about the application process, funding, and obligations, should visit https://www.landcaretas.org.au/landcare_action_grants
