Drought Assistance Evaluation Survey -
The NSW Department of Primary Industries (DPI), on behalf of the NSW Government, is conducting an evaluation of the drought assistance measures available between July 2018 and June 2021. If you were eligible for NSW Government drought support between July 2018 and June 2021, please complete the survey by clicking here before 3 March 2021.

The NSW Rural Assistance Authority (RAA) provides tailored access to loans, grants, rebates and subsidies for primary producers and small business operators.

We have decades of experience helping producers, business operators and regional communities become more resilient, self-reliant and sustainable by accessing the right assistance, at the right time.

This experience informs our ongoing contribution to farming and rural policies, and the advice we provide the NSW Government, helping to ensure future measures reflect the real needs of farmers.

The RAA has recently helped more than 12,000 primary producers access almost $1 billion in drought assistance, and more than 2,400 producers, small businesses and not-for-profits access more than $210 million in bushfire recovery assistance.
