On the heels of the announcement for Lake Ewlyamartup Living Lakes project, the additional news of receiving $199,414 for two years to Katanning Landcare through State NRM Capability Grants funding is like Christmas come early.

Katanning Landcare was one of six Landcare groups who were awarded a portion of $554,414 of previously uncommitted funds from the 2015-18 round of large Community Capability grants, provided through the Western Australian Government, State NRM Program and Royalties for Regions.

Katanning Landcare had been had been struggling to maintain operations following an unsuccessful bid to receive a portion of the $8.3million of Capability Grants funding announced in May 2016.

The focus of this funding is to set up the organisation for long-term self-sufficiency, reducing reliance on government grant funding.

Scott Newbey, our Chairman, thanked all of those who have shown support for Katanning Landcare at both the local and state level. “It has paid off and we won’t let you down.”
