The Morrison Liberal Government will invest more than $22 million to deliver practical environmental projects, giving communities new opportunities to protect and care for their local environment.
The Communities Environment Program will provide up to $150,000 to each Federal electorate in 2019-20 for community-led projects that deliver real environmental benefits.
$150,000 will be available for local groups in Corangamite, which are already delivering excellent projects whether it’s planting trees, cleaning up waterways or preventing soil erosion
The program will fund small-scale projects that deliver outcomes for priorities such as restoring coasts, wetlands, riverbanks and waterways, protecting native animals, reducing waste and litter, and greening local parks and urban areas.
A broad range of organisations will be eligible, including community clubs like Lions clubs and rotary clubs, Indigenous organisations, Landcare groups, schools, and other community and conservation groups.
