2024 SALP Recipients

16th February, 2024

Congratulations to the 2024 SALP Grant Recipients!

The Swan Alcoa Landcare Program (SALP) is a joint initiative of Alcoa of Australia, the Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions (DBCA), and the Burswood Park Board, delivered by Perth NRM, established to provide a simple process for community groups to access funding for on-ground environmental works.

Since its inception in 1998, SALP has provided more than $10 million in funding to community groups, who in turn have delivered more than 1,600 restoration projects, engaging thousands of volunteers and contributing over 241,000 work hours. This includes weeding on over 7,600 hectares, planting more than 3 million plants to revegetate over 3,100 hectares, feral animal control, and the creation of wildlife habitat.

On Thursday 11 February, 2024, the SALP program announced the recipients of the 2024 round of funding, providing over $280,00 to 21 community groups across the Perth region, for projects improving bushland and waterways.
