Conservation incentive to drive projects

Conservation incentive to drive projects

Applications are now open for landholders to access funding opportunities through the Limestone Coast Landscape Board’s new Habitat Conservation Incentive Grants. 

There is a $50,000 funding pool that will be provided across the Limestone Coast region to support local landholders to undertake on-ground projects that contribute to conserving and enhancing our region’s biodiversity. 

Local landholders are now able to apply for up to $7000 of funding from the Limestone Coast Landscape Board to support projects that protect remnant native vegetation or assist with re-vegetation projects on their property while having primary production co-benefits 

Habitat and Conservation Team Leader Mark de Jong said funding could be used to kick start projects such as shelterbelts or fencing off native vegetation from stock.  

“The incentive grant program is a great opportunity for individual property owners to support biodiversity benefits and improve productivity on their farm,” he said.

“Applications are now open for the three-stage process of the funding. The first stage will require applicants to complete an initial application form that summarises the project they wish to fund.” 

Initial applications close October 31. Visit for more information on how to apply visit the grants and funding page.
