River and Creek Grants

Meet The River and Creek Grants

We have partnered with Melbourne Water for many years to assist in delivering the Stream Frontage Management Program in the Western Port catchment. This program is designed to improve waterway health, increase biodiversity and improve farm productivity through fencing off waterways, planting indigenous vegetation & providing watering troughs in paddocks for stock. We also visit and advise landholders and farmers on waterway management projects and organise and run waterway focused events.

Funding & eligibility. Your eligibility for funding, and the specific amount of funding you are entitled to, will be determined after a site visit by our river health assessor. The amount and type of funding varies according to the type of work you are willing to undertake, and the length of river or creek you wish to protect. Funding can include fencing to exclude stock from waterways, plants, weed control and in some cases, off stream stock watering systems such as header tanks, troughs and pipes.

For more information please contact Bridgette Sullivan at bridgette@wpcln.org.au or 0407 205 749.
