Community Grants Applications for 2019/20 are currently closed

The Victorian Gorse Taskforce (VGT) supports communities to reduce gorse in their local area.

  • Our Small Community Grants Program provides up to $5,000 for small-scale gorse control on individual properties (2 or more). It mainly provides funding to rebate 50 per cent of costs for landholders to undertake gorse control.
  • Our Large Community Grants Program provides up to $30,000 for community-led gorse control education and treatment across a local landscape. It provides funding for a project officer as well as rebates to landholders.

If gorse is a problem on your land or across your community, the VGT encourages you to apply when applications reopen in 2020.

Speak with neighbours or your local Landcare group to determine how many landholders are interested and the extent of the gorse infestations.
