Grassroots Grants

Grassroots Grants

Got a project idea to protect or restore the environment in the Northern and Yorke region?

Our Grassroots Grants program supports volunteers, schools, community groups, First Nations, councils and landholders to sustainably manage landscapes through on-ground work and education.

Each year, funding between $2,000 and $10,000 is awarded on a competitive basis to projects that demonstrate the best value for money and deliver outcomes that address the key priorities in the Northern and Yorke Landscape Plan.

Northern and Yorke Landscape Board's 2024/2025 round offers a funding pool of $250,000, with $50,000 dedicated to First Nations-led projects. Multi-year project funding of up to $30,000 is also available over a period of up to 3 years. A maximum of $10,000 is allocated each year.
