$1 billion has been allocated for Landcare, a programme committed to nature resource management ABC News reported.
The Federal Government revealed that $450 million is set to be pumped into the Regional Land Partnership Programme which officiates as the funder of 56 natural resource management organisations (NRM).
Conservation initiatives continue to dominate the spending.
Details outlining what the remaining amount of the initial fund will be utilised for is currently under wraps.
Answers from the Government on this are expected over the next number of months.
Indigenous Protected Areas are continuing to receive ongoing funding, totalling to $15 million.
Concern has been expressed by rangers and conservationists alike because of no clarification on ongoing funding for existing IPA’s.
The Government has since clarified that $93 million out of the fund will go directly “to the ongoing support of existing IPAs.”
In addition, Australian World Heritage sites will receive $47.4 million.
The Reef 2050 sustainability plan has been allocated an additional $24.7 million.
"This next phase of the program will help Landcare, farmer groups and Indigenous communities continue their valuable work of delivering on-ground biodiversity and sustainable agricultural outcomes that benefit both our communities and our environment," Environment Minister Josh Frydenberg said in a statement to ABC news.
The Natural Landcare Program strives to address many issues including loss of vegetation, soil degradation, and the introduction of pest, weeds and animals, changes in water quality and flows and changes in fire regimes.
