The Victorian Government has an exciting new opportunity to inspire ideas and encourage innovation by funding community-led projects that consider new ways of volunteering in and for the environment. Parks and forests in Victoria are supported and enhanced by a host of passionate volunteers. The Volunteering Innovation Fund is building on this incredible work and inviting everyone to enjoy Victoria’s Great Outdoors through volunteering.
The Volunteering Innovation Fund will award $2million in funding over four rounds, with the final round closing in 2022.
The Volunteering Innovation Fund is now closed.
Outcomes to the Biodiversity Round will be announced in January 2023.
