The NSW Government has provided $15 million over four years to renew the government-community relationship and unlock the full potential of the thousands of volunteers in the Landcare network.
The program reflects the sentiment of the Memorandum of Understanding between Local Land Services and Landcare NSW. It has been designed to put Landcare on a more sustainable funding footing, with the majority of the funds going to community-based local coordinator positions.
It is a new commitment to support regional Landcare Networks and local groups and will not be allocated for on-ground works.
What does this mean for the Central West Lachlan Landcare area?
With the addition of this funding we can provide more services to our communities and encourage our local Landcare network.
We can now keep our doors open between 9am - 3.30pm on a weekday.
The Local Landcare Coordinators Initiative is funded by the NSW Government, and is supported through the partnership of Local Land Services and Landcare NSW.
