Local Development Strategy Grants

The introduction of the Victorian Forestry Plan brings with it the need for impacted communities to start thinking about how the end of native timber harvesting will change their regions.

Local Development Strategy grants will make sure that affected communities are well supported through the native timber transition.

Grants of up to $500,000 are available to help 11 communities that are affected by the Victorian Forestry Plan.

The grants provide support for communities to plan for their future including how they can create different and sustainable jobs in their area.

Allocation of the Local Development Strategy grants is now exhausted.
