Swan Alcoa Landcare Program – WA
The Swan Alcoa Landcare Program (SALP) was established in 1998 to support urban community groups throughout the Swan Canning catchment in Western Australia. Community groups apply to SALP for Landcare grants of up to $20,000 annually for a single project. The program has delivered more than $8.4 million for 1,323 on-ground projects. Volunteers have contributed nearly 182,000 hours and put close to 2.5 million plants in the ground, revegetating more than 1,943 hectares of degraded land. To date, SALP has injected almost $18.3million into the economy through partnership funding, local government contributions and volunteer labour estimated at $3.6 million. These funds have provided significant protection and improvement in the waterways and bushlands of the Swan Canning catchment.
