East Gippsland Water is now inviting applications for Round 8 of its Native Vegetation and Habitat Creation Grants program, which is open to educational and not-for-profit community groups across the region.
Creating, protecting and restoring habitats with native vegetation helps to renew and grow our local ecosystem. East Gippsland Water is committed to sustainability and through these grants aim to help improve long term liveability across the East Gippsland region.
Grants are available for new and existing projects that focus on native vegetation planting or habitat creation.
