National Landcare Program

The National Landcare Program is a key part of the Australian Government’s commitment to natural resource management.

The Australian Government is investing more than $1 billion for phase two of the National Landcare Program, being delivered from July 2017 to June 2023.

The investment will primarily be delivered by the Department of the Environment and Energy and the Department of Agriculture and Water Resources and will include a range of measures to support natural resource management, sustainable agriculture and to protect Australia’s biodiversity.

The phase two investment includes $450 million for the Regional Land Partnerships Program to deliver natural resource management at a regional scale.

Guided by findings from the National Landcare Program Review, the regional delivery program will build on the strengths of the previous program and continue to connect and engage with local communities as part of its efforts to protect Australia’s unique environment and natural resources.

The Regional Land Partnerships tender opened on 18 December 2017.
