Grassroots Grants

The Northern and Yorke Landscape Board’s Grassroots Grants program is now open to volunteers, schools, community groups, First Nations, councils and landholders to sustainably manage landscapes through on-ground work and education.

Community members that have practical ideas to improve the health of the region’s landscapes can apply for between $2,000 and $10,000 until Monday, 3 June 2024. Funded through the landscape levy, there is a $250,000 total funding pool, with $50,000 dedicated to First Nations-led projects. And for the first time, multi-year project funding of up to $30,000 over a period of up to 3 years. Potential projects include weed, pest or disease control, watercourse or wetland management, revegetation, survey and monitoring activities, sustainable agriculture trials, cultural knowledge sharing and community education.

To dive into the details of the 2024-2025 Grassroots Grants program, you’re invited to attend an online information session on Monday, 13 May from 4.30pm-6pm. Northern and Yorke Landscape Board’s team will guide you through the application process and answer your questions.
