Recreational Fishing Grants Program
Every year the Victorian Government, through the Recreational Fishing Licence Trust Account, disburses revenue derived from the sale of Recreational Fishing Licences to projects that will improve recreational fishing in Victoria.
Since its inception in 2001, the Recreational Fishing Grants Program (RFGP) has funded over 600 projects, worth more than $21 million throughout Victoria. The RFGP comprises three separate programs including:
- A Small Grants Program that is continually open to fund small projects (up to $5,000 - GST Exclusive)
- A Large Grants Program (for projects from $5,001 to $100,000 - GST Exclusive)
- A Commissioning Program for large priority projects (generally in excess of $100,000).
RFL revenue will continue to be provided for fish stocking. For ALL fish stocking proposals contact Fisheries Victoria on (03) 5770 8045 during normal business hours.
