Grassroots Grants

Applications for Grassroots Grants through the Hills and Fleurieu Landscape Board for 2020/21 have now closed. Thank you to all applicants. We are now undertaking assessments and will be in touch regarding the outcome of your applications as soon as possible. We estimate this is likely to be by early October.

The Hills and Fleurieu Landscape Board funds Grassroots Grants to support individuals, volunteers, community organisations and other not-for-profit bodies working to improve management of landscapes at the local level.

Funding is for projects valued up to $50,000 (+GST) for the 2020-21 financial year, totalling $220,000. 

Funding will be awarded on merit to projects that demonstrate the best value for money and delivery of outcomes addressing the priorities in the Hills and Fleurieu Business Plan 2020-21 and assessed against eligibility and assessment criteria.

Funding could be used to either kickstart a new project or build upon an existing one. Activities might include weed control, pest or disease management, fencing, erosion management, soil health, revegetation and community education activities. 

Applications have now closed for this year.
