Up to $3000 Federal Government Drought Support Apply Today, Farmer in Paddock

The Drought Community Support Initiative (DCSI) Round 2 is a Federal Government funded grant that provides immediate financial assistance of up to $3000 to farmers, farm workers, or farm suppliers/contractors including sale yard and abattoir workers who have been financially impacted by drought.

Payments may cover numerous expenses such as groceries, vehicle maintenance, energy & utility bills, health & medical expenses, for example. The benefit is limited to one per household up to a maximum cash payment of $3000.

 Not all impacts of the drought are the same. Some drought-affected communities have had rainfall, others haven't. Recovery is ongoing. Whatever your situation, it can take time to bounce back.
