Federal Member For Banks
Shadow Minister for Communications


To celebrate the 25th anniversary of Landcare, the Australian Government has announced that up to $5 million in grants is available for local Landcare and community groups.

David Coleman, Federal Member for Banks, said that the grants of up to $20,000 will be “a great boost for local Landcare and other local natural resource management groups to help protect our local environment”.

“These grants will enable groups that help look after our environment to receive much needed financial support,” Mr Coleman said.

“Applications are now open and close on 20 October, so I encourage our local natural resource management community to come up with great ideas that will help protect our land and natural assets, and to get involved by getting their applications in”.
