Grassroots Grants

Grants now open

The Hills and Fleurieu Landscape Board is funding 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, with a total of $220,000 available. 

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. 

For further details regarding eligibility and assessment criteria please refer to the Guidelines.
