Landcare Support Program

Landcare groups and networks in the Hunter Region can apply to host a Local Landcare Coordinator, as part of the $15 million 2015-19 NSW Landcare Support Program. Under the program, the Local Landcare Coordinator Initiative will provide a network of locally-based coordinators to work with local Landcare groups and networks to build capacity and connections within communities, to effectively participate in natural resource management activities that address critical agricultural sustainability and environmental issues.

The initiative, co-designed between Landcare NSW and the NSW Government, will deliver a network of locally based coordinators to increase the effectiveness of the Landcare network across the state. 

The program will see up to 60 part-time Local Landcare Coordinators engaged to work with communities throughout NSW for a period of up to 3.5 years from 1 January 2016. It is anticipated that 4-6 part-time Local Landcare Coordinators will be available in the Hunter. 

Applications to host a Local Landcare Coordinator will open on 14 September 2015.
