KI Bushfire Recovery Fencing Grants

The Kangaroo Island Landscape Board is pleased to offer additional financial assistance to KI landholders affected by the 2019-2020 bushfires.

The current round of funding is to help landholders replace or establish fencing that protects native vegetation burnt in the 2019-2020 fires on Kangaroo Island. The funding can be provided retrospectively for fencing work that has already been completed, as well as fencing works that are underway or yet to commence.

Funds are paid upon completion and fencing must be completed by 31 May 2022.

Applications are now open and close at 5pm on 15 October 2021 or when all funds have been allocated. 

All applications must be submitted online via the SmartyGrants portal. 

Please read the Funding Guidelines for information about the rate of funding, eligibility, and the application process before applying. 

If you need any assistance completing your application, please contact:

The Kangaroo Island Landscape Board on 08 8553 2476 during business hours, or email

KI Bushfire Recovery Fencing Grants are supported by the Kangaroo Island Landscape Board with funding provided by the Government of South Australia to the Department for Environment and Water and the Minister for Environment and Water as part of its continued efforts to empower local communities to recover from the devastating bushfires on Kangaroo Island, and the Australian Government’s Bushfire Recovery Package for Wildlife and their Habitat.
