Environment Restoration Fund
The Australian Government is investing $100 million, over four years from 2019-20 to 2022-23, to help ensure our environment is protected for future generations through the Environment Restoration Fund.
The Environment Restoration Fund builds on the Government’s $1 billion investment, over six years from 2017-18 to 2022-23, in the National Landcare Program, to protect Australia’s water, soil, plants and animals and support their productive and sustainable use. The Fund complements the Government’s Communities Environment Program, which focuses on ‘small-scale grants’ for community projects.
The Government’s investment in the Fund will help to deliver national environmental priorities, including the protection of Matters of National Environmental Significance such as listed threatened and migratory species and ecological communities and Ramsar wetlands.
