The Tasmanian Government allocated funding of $1.8m over four years in the 2018-19 State Budget for the establishment of the Landcare Action Grants Program (the Program). The Program has been established to provide State funded grant opportunities to co-invest with farmers, Landcare, and other community organisations on practical on-ground works for sustainable agriculture and Rivercare type activities.

The Tasmanian Farmers and Graziers Association (TFGA) will deliver the Program on behalf of, and in partnership with, the Department of Primary Industries, Parks, Water and Environment (DPIPWE).

The Program is designed to:

Improve landscape and riverine health, stability and resilience;
Support enhanced land management practices to reduce erosion and sedimentation; and
Assist the community to holistically manage natural and productive land and waterways across the landscape.

Round One of the Program has so far been a huge success with over $190,000 worth of funding already delivered to participants over 37 projects throughout Tasmania.

Round Two applications have now closed. Follow the link above to find the program guidelines.
