$650,000 Boost To Public Access And Safety Along Victoria’s Coast

23 July 2015

The Andrews Labor Government will distribute $650,000 in grants to improve public access and safety along the state’s coastline under the 2015-16 Coastal Environments Program – Access and Risk.

The application process is now open and Victorian coastal Crown land managers are eligible to apply for the grants for projects on coastal Crown land.

These grants provide critical support for smaller volunteer-run committees of management to larger committees of management that work to improve access to our coasts while reducing risk.

Whether it’s works to improve fencing, boardwalks or stairs, the projects that qualify for funding must improve public access and reduce risk.

Applications will be assessed in the context of state-wide risk priorities. Maintenance or works deemed day-to-day management of a reserve are ineligible for funding and applications must be received by 4pm Friday 14 August 2015.
