Each year Riverina Local Land Services delivers a number of grant and funding programs.  There are a wide range of projects that address the broad areas of:

  • productive farms
  • natural landscapes
  • community grants

Projects will vary across local government areas within the Riverina region.

Funding for 2019/20 will be updated here by 30 August 2019!


Funding 2018/19

Landholders in the Riverina Local Land Services region are able to apply for incentive funding in 2018/19. Below is a snapshot of each project where funding has been available or is currently available.

For more information on each project follow the links below.

Farming Smarter – a soils project for the Next Generation

This project focuses on precision agriculture for pastures and working with the next generation of farmers to manage the risks of acidification and hill-slope erosion in the eastern Riverina. Riverina Local Land Services will use soil testing on a paddock scale in the topsoil (0-10cm) and subsoil (10-20cm) to measure soil pH and exchangeable cations. Precision agriculture technology will be used to generate soil management maps and guide producers’ decisions on investing in lime and perennial pastures on their properties.

Improving Natural Landscapes

This project focuses on a range of restoration activities that protect and restore threatened species and ecological communities across the Riverina. Good quality remnant native vegetation exists across the Riverina, often on private land. These areas are home to Inland Grey Box Grassy Woodlands, White Box-Yellow Box, Blakely’s Red Gum Grassy Woodlands, Weeping Myall Woodland, Buloke Woodland and associated grasslands. This project aims to manage and enhance these areas for future generations.

Adjungbilly Creek Catchment - Save Our Species

The Adjungbilly Creek is a unique catchment in the Riverina Local Land Services region due to its populations of a number of endangered plants and animals.

Over the past four years, Riverina Local Land Services (LLS) has worked with Landcare, landholders and researchers to gain an understanding of the extent of the population of these endangered species as well as undertaking preliminary works to assist their recovery.

Through this ongoing project, we have improved habitat for endangered species and ecological communities through the protection and restoration of 227 hectares of the catchment by revegetating gullies to improve water quality, protected areas of native vegetation by installing 41 kilometres of fencing and re-established corridors of native vegetation by planting 30,000 native trees and shrubs.

Saving Our Squirrel Gliders

This project aims to improve breeding and foraging habitat through the planting of new corridors and protection of core breeding habitat. This project works with land owners within the project area to restore existing vegetation and create new vegetation corridors that will provide new and improved foraging and nesting habitat. This project will also help coordinate pest control activities for foxes. A coordinated approach to baiting will lead to a greater reduction in their numbers and reduce the impact of predation. In conjunction with these on ground works we will also be running community based monitoring in the form of spotlighting events.
