Coastcare Victoria Community Grants 2019

Applications are now closed for the Coastcare Victoria Community Grants 2019.

The Coastcare Victoria Community Grants Program supports community organisations to protect and enhance the coastal and near-shore marine environment. It has two key focus areas:

  • Conservation, rehabilitation, restoration and preventative actions for Victoria’s coastal and marine ecosystems.
  • Support community participation and engagement to enhance community knowledge and understanding of coastal and marine management.

Grants of up to $10,000 for one-year projects and $15,000 for two-year projects are available.
