LASA rolls out new Financial Assistance Package for Landcare groups

The Landcare Association of South Australia (LASA) are rolling out the new Landcare SA Financial Assistance Package.

There are two components to this Package:

  1. The Care for Landcare Grants Program to support member groups to purchase and/or hire equipment and materials.
  2. The Landcare Insurance Fee Reimbursement Scheme to pay back member groups for insurance premiums that they have incurred in the last 12 months.

LASA Executive Officer, Dr Eleanor Pratt, expressed her excitement about the new package. “It’s great to now be able to put money directly into grassroots Landcare, helping our members to cover some of those basic costs that are essential to their Landcare activities – insurance, equipment and materials.”

“This means that they are able to focus their efforts on the ground, rather than always chasing core funding.”

The Landcare Financial Assistance Package is closed for 2023.

This Package will provide $350K over four years directly to community Landcare, and is funded by the SA State Government’s Care for Landcare program.
