Grants to help native plants and animals

By Campaspe News

GRANTS of up to $50,000 are available to help communities protect and expand habitats for Victoria’s native plants and animals on public and private land.

The grants come as part of the 2018 community and volunteer action grants under the biodiversity on-ground action initiative.

Expressions of interest are also being sought from groups interested in developing their crowdfunding, social media and marketing skills through free workshops in the form of crowdfunding grants.

Grants up to $2,000 are available to successful applicants to develop crowdfunding campaigns that raise funds for threatened species and biodiversity projects in Victoria.

The Victorian government will match any of these campaigns that successfully reach their crowdfunding target, up to $25,000.
