Funding available to protect our bay

Applications for the Victorian Government’s $10 million Port Phillip Bay Fund are now open.

The fund will support projects that address local and regional priorities to protect the health of the Port Phillip Bay and the bay catchment area, including:

  • encouraging partnerships across a range of interested groups and organisations who support the environmental health of the bay
  • enhancing the amenity and environmental values in the Bay and on the foreshore
  • reducing and addressing threats to the health of the Bay, including nutrients, pollutants and litter.

It will be open to both small and large scale projects, with community groups, non-government organisations, local government and other agencies encouraged to apply.
