Victorian Gorse Taskforce Small Grants Program now open

Victorian Gorse Taskforce

2016/17 COMMUNITY Small Grants Program

The Victorian Gorse Taskforce (VGT) with the support of the Department of Economic Development, Jobs, Transport and Resources (DEDJTR) is seeking project proposals from community-based organisations.  The VGT will consider funding projects that can demonstrate delivery of the goals of the Victorian Gorse Control Strategy (VGCS) 2014-2019 and a community-led commitment to long-term gorse control.

This program is designed so that smaller community based groups can be empowered to implement key gorse control projects in Victoria. These projects shall be designed to run with minimal facilitation.  A local contact needs to be available to complete project administration requirements.  The small grants program in 2016/17 can provide up to $5,000 (GST exclusive) to support community-led projects.
