National Landcare Program

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

From 2014/15–2017/18, the Australian Government invested $1 billion to continue their longstanding commitment to delivering on-ground biodiversity and sustainable agriculture outcomes that benefit our community and environment.

More about the National Landcare Program.

The Australian Government is investing more than $1 billion in the next phase of the Nat​ional Landcare Program over six years from July 2017 to June 2023.

This includes the $100 million previously agreed in the 2016-17 Mid-Year Economic and Fiscal Outlook. The funding will be delivered over six years beginning in 2017-18.

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.

Information on the overarching program, its previous iterations and the Review of the National Landcare Program that was undertaken in 2016, is located on the NRM website. The NRM website also has information about all of the sub-programs of the National Landcare Program, including the jointly delivered Regional Land Partnerships program.

This site also gives details of the upcoming consultation and information sessions that will be held in conjunction with the Department of the Environment and Energy.

The details of the elements that are delivered by the Department of Agriculture and Water Resources are detailed at Department of Agriculture and Water Resources investment in landcare.
