Landcare Led Bushfire Recovery Grants Program
The $14 million federally-funded Landcare Led Bushfire Recovery Grants Program supports recovery projects in seven government-designated regions impacted by the 2019/2020 Black Summer bushfires. Projects focus on species and habitat restoration and protection of essential unburnt habitats, bringing together a diverse range of experience and expertise from on-ground Landcarers and community groups, Traditional Owners, researchers, subject matter experts, Not-For-Profit organisations and more. The large number of high-quality grant applications received demonstrated the strong community capacity for bushfire recovery and ecological restoration.
The program is managed by a partnership between Peak State and Territory Landcare organisations, the National Landcare Network and Landcare Australia, demonstrating that excellent projects and outcomes for improved delivery of bushfire recovery actions are achieved when landcare is engaged and supported.
