Melbourne Water’s Living Rivers program offers Councils funding, expertise and guidance to build understanding, skills and commitment for managing stormwater within an integrated water management approach.
The last round of funding in February saw $1.49 million offered to 18 local councils for 24 projects. This round, approximately $1.5 million will be available to local governments for projects that improve the health of waterways and the bays and provide multiple benefit outcomes for local communities.
New Grant Application Guidelines have been launched with helpful tools such as a pre-application checklist to assist Councils in preparing grant applications. To access these resources and learn more about funding priorities, eligibility criteria, and case studies of projects previously funded through the Living Rivers Fund, please contact the team or visit the Living Rivers web page.
