Tasmanian Landcare Fund (TLF)
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.
The Tasmanian Landcare Fund (TLF) supports all of our programs, including much needed grants directly to member-driven projects. Landcare Tasmania Inc. is a charity registered with the ACNC and listed on the Register of Environmental Organisations. The Tasmanian Landcare Fund (TLF) is our public fund, which can receive tax deductible donations.
Landcare Action Grants Program (LAG)
Landcare Tasmania is delivering part of the Landcare Action Grants program on behalf of the Department of Natural Resources (NRE) to support our members' projects, bringing community members together across a landscape to maximise impact. The Tasmanian Government allocated $1.8m in funding for the establishment of the Landcare Action Grants Program in 2019, and in 2022 a further $900k over 4 years was announced.
Since 2019, Landcare Tasmania has been delivering Landscape-scale projects supported by the Landcare Action Grants program. These projects bring together members and partners across a landscape to pool resources and tackle common issues. Visit our Featured Projects page to learn more.

Landcare Assistance Program (LAP)
The Landcare Assistance Program is a small annual cash 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.
