Up to $5,000
The Biolink Boost Grant aims to support revegetation activities in strategic areas across the Macedon Ranges, and to provide groups with a means to engage with landholders and increase membership.
The Biolink Boost Grant is intended to assist groups with a back-to-basics approach involving funding for revegetation activities, and will be supported by the provision of marketing materials from Council Environment Unit for the successful applicants’ projects.
Successful projects will help achieve the landscape connectivity plan detailed in the Biodiversity Strategy 2018. All Landcare, Friends Groups and Networks will be eligible to apply for grants of up to $5,000.
Council’s community partners, Macedon Ranges Community Enterprises Limited and Bendigo Bank will provide $20,000 to match the $20,000 funding offered by Council. The co-funding partnership means that community environment groups have the opportunity to access a total of $40,000.
