News article |

$276,000 in funding has been awarded to fourteen projects across the Limestone Coast region as part of the Limestone Coast Landscape Board’s Grassroots Grants Program.

The Grassroots Grants Program aims to support projects by eligible individuals, volunteers, schools and community organisations, First Nations and not-for profit groups working towards sustainable landscapes.

Dr. Penny Schulz LC Landscape Board Chair said, “Our Grassroots Grants Program saw an increase in applications for the 2023/24 year, indicating how important this funding is for the region. Community groups have really taken on board the benefits that the funding can provide in kick starting projects to sustainably manage our landscape.”

“This year is the fourth year of the program and it has been fantastic to see application submissions continually increasing and meeting board priorities. This year’s round has seen new and returning organisations with innovative and bold ideas. It will be fantastic to see the outcomes of these projects.” Penny said.

Grassroots Grants recipient Nora Creina Shack Association spokesperson Angela May said, “The Shack Association are excited to start this project. Securing funds in this round of Grassroots Grants will ensure we can work to combat African Lovegrass in the area and use native plants for revegetation, protecting the environmental and recreational value of Nora Creina.”
