The KI Landscape Board assists community groups and individual land managers to develop proposals and seek funding for projects that focus on improving the landscape on KI.
On-Ground Works Funding
At certain times of the year, the Kangaroo Island Landscape Board invites landholders, including lifestyle acreages, Landcare groups and community groups to submit an expression of interest for funding for on-ground works projects. The current round for expressions of interest closes Friday 20 September 2019.
Previous projects to receive funding have completed activities like:
• Fencing of existing native (remnant) vegetation on blocks to protect from grazing livestock.
• Revegetation (planting of native trees and shrubs) to extend existing vegetation, revegetate salt patches, around lagoons and along creek lines, etc.
• Fencing of revegetation projects to protect from grazing livestock and native browsers.
• Stock and/or vehicle crossings to minimise stream sedimentation and eutrophication. (Please note that this activity option is discontinued under the current funding round.)
• Water point relocation to move stock watering points out of streams and minimise in-stream sedimentation and eutrophication. (Please note that this activity option is discontinued under the current funding round.)
The current On-ground Works grant funding round is available for, and limited to, activities within the Kangaroo Island narrow-leaved mallee habitat zone (see map below). If you would like to find out more about possible funding opportunities for an on-ground works project in patch, please contact the KI Landscape Board's Narrow-leaved Mallee Project Officer on 8553 4444.
Guidelines and Expression-of-Interest-Forms are available here.
The on-ground works grants are supported by the KI NRM Board with funding from the Australian Government’s Regional Land Partnerships Program.
