Last Chance For Community Groups To Apply For Threatened Species Grants

16 September 2015

Community groups involved in protecting threatened species are being reminded there’s just a week left to get their applications in for a new Victorian Government grants program.

The $5.2 million Threatened Species Protection Initiative supports actions giving threatened species a chance through habitat creation and restoration, and site protection.

The Initiative includes $2 million to support the work of community groups through the Community Volunteer Action Grants, for small-scale threatened species projects that enable local community groups to undertake direct action.

Applications for this grants program close 4.00pm on Tuesday the 22nd of September 2015.

Applications for the grants are still open. For more information or to apply for the grants, visit Link

Quotes attributable to the Minister for Environment, Climate Change and Water, Lisa Neville

“I encourage Victorian community groups working to help protect their local threatened species to apply for this $2 million grants program before applications close next week.”

“These Community Volunteer Action Grants will support important threatened species protection work at a local level, through activities such as planting vegetation, building fences, species monitoring and creating suitable habitat for threatened species.”
