East Gippsland Water Native Vegetation and Habitat Grants
The Native Vegetation and Habitat Creation Grants Program has been developed as part of East Gippsland Water 2018-2023 Pricing Submission (2018-2023 business plan).
During the extensive community engagement undertaken whilst in preparation of the pricing submission, customers informed us that they wanted East Gippsland Water to be more environmentally focused and to do more for our local environment. As a result we have development the grants program.
This program is also supported through the Victorian Government’s Water for Victoria strategy, Resilient and Liveable Cities and Towns, which focuses on Victoria being a vibrant place to live, work and visit, with cities and towns that support thriving communities and attract business and industry. Water is seen as an important resource for our health and wellbeing, keeping our trees, sporting fields and parks green and supporting business and industry that rely on a secure water supply.
The program will run each year of the Price Submission with applications open to educational and community groups across the East Gippsland region.
Grants can be for any Native Vegetation or Habitat Creation program which meets the application criteria.
By being able to complete such projects we are aiming to improve the liveability and resilience across our region.
