Help for Flood Affected Farmers

share

The NSW and Australian Governments are providing $50,000 in financial assistance for farmers who experienced extensive damage caused by severe weather during November and December 2021.

Member for Goulburn Wendy Tuckerman explained “By unlocking these Special Disaster Grants, it will help our farmers salvage damaged crops, produce and stock, rebuild fences, and replace machinery.

“It often takes time to realise the full extent of the damage after a natural disaster, so it is great the NSW Government can offer the first $10,000 of the grant up-front to help with initial recovery costs, and a further $40,000 to continue repairing the damage.

“The NSW and Australian Governments have provided assistance through the jointly funded Commonwealth-State Disaster Recovery Funding Arrangements to help our community to recover and rebuild, so we can get back on track as soon as possible,” she said.

Applications can be made through the NSW Rural Assistance Authority (RAA), by calling 1800 678 593 or online at www.raa.nsw.gov.au. Producers are encouraged not to self-assess and to apply for the scheme so the RAA can determine eligibility.
