Land Management Incentive Program

We offer a Land Management Incentive Program (LMIP) to help Nillumbik residents address land degradation, improve their properties and protect and enhance biodiversity.

The Program offers flexible grants to support a range of integrated land management activities for private landowners. Projects relating to land within the green wedge and Rural Conservation Zone or areas in or adjoining land with an Environmental Significance Overlay (ESO) will be given priority over others.

Council has developed guidelines, which contain the specific details for eligibility of projects for their assessment and funding through the LMIP.
