Landcare Action Grants Program


27 Oct 2021

Share

The Tasmanian Government has allocated $900,000 over four years in the 2021-22 State Budget to continue the Landcare Action Grants Program, which builds on $1.8m in funding provided in previous years.  The program provides State-funded grant opportunities to co-invest with farmers, Landcare and other community organisations on practical on-ground works for sustainable agriculture and Rivercare type activities.

The scope of the program has now been expanded to include carbon farming initiatives, with the potential to link these activities with the Government's Carbon Farming Advice Rebate‚Äč.

The Tasmanian Farmers and Graziers Association (TFGA) and Landcare Tasmania will deliver the Program on behalf of, and in partnership with, the Department of Primary Industries, Parks, Water and Environment (DPIPWE).
The Program is designed to:
  • Improve landscape and riverine health, stability and resilience;
  • Support enhanced land management practices to reduce erosion and sedimentation;
  • Assist the community to holistically manage natural and productive land and waterways across the landscape; and
  • Provide opportunities for landholders to implement carbon farming initiatives in order to access carbon markets, in particular the Australian Government's Emission Reduction Fund

There is more information about the Landcare Action Grants Program and how to get involved on the TFGA Website.
