Victorian Litter Plan - Litter Innovation Fund

The Victorian Litter Innovation Fund provides support for the Victorian community, including government, business, not-for-profit organisations, social enterprises and schools, to fund innovative approaches that prevent and reduce the impact of litter and illegal dumping.

Organisations are eligible to apply for grants of up to $20,000 for innovative solutions to litter and illegal dumping that are delivered through a partnership approach. Projects must have at least three or more of the following seven elements of the Victorian Litter Action Alliance (VLAA) best practice model for litter prevention:

  • Education
  • Infrastructure
  • Enforcement
  • Incentives
  • Working together
  • Good communication
  • Monitoring and evaluation.

Applications for Round 1 of the Fund closed on 4 March 2016.  Applications are currently being assessed and the funded projects will be announced in mid-2016.

Round 2 of the Fund will be announced later this year.
