Limestone Coast Landscape Board supports local communities through Grassroots Grant funding

Applications are now open for volunteers and local community organisations to access funding opportunities through the Limestone Coast Landscape Board Grassroots Grants program with a total funding pool of $250,283 available.

After a successful first round in 2020/2021 that funded sixteen projects the LC Landscape Board looks forward to supporting more regional projects that align with the priorities and focus areas for 2021/2022.

Minister for Environment and Water David Speirs said the Grassroots Grants program is aimed at local projects that contribute to improved management of the environment.

“The Marshall Liberal Government’s Landscape SA legislation is a historic reform of how we approach natural resources management in South Australia,” Minister Speirs said.

“It’s all about a back-to-basics approach and giving local communities a greater say in how we manage our natural environment".

“The Grassroots Grants could be used to kickstart a new project or build upon an existing one for activities such as weed treatment, pest or disease management, fencing, erosion management, revegetation and community education activities.”

Local community groups, not-for-profit organisations and volunteers are encouraged to apply now for funding from the board to help them sustainably manage their local landscapes. The board expects to fund a range of projects in 2021/2022 across the Limestone Coast region that will address its priority areas.

Limestone Coast Landscape Board newly appointed Chair Penny Schulz said, “The program is a great opportunity for community members, not-for-profit organisations and local community organisations to get involved and respond to local landscape management issues”.

Funding will provide a financial boost to local groups, and will make a real difference to the health of our landscape here in the Limestone Coast.

Applications close 5pm, 19 April 2021.
