|$1M committed to LASA in the recent South Australian Government budget.|
|This funding will be used to roll out the ‘Care for Landcare’ program, designed to build capacity and support for Landcarers and Landcare groups around the state.|
Over the next four years, we will be increasing the amount of support available to our members, including for training, and grant application writing and reporting. We’ll be offering a series of small grants, and improving the insurance offers available to our members and working to ease the financial burden that this poses to many groups.
We are so excited at this opportunity to give our members a much needed injection of funds and support. Stay tuned for more details!
