Group's Vault Grant

Unlock your group’s potential – access our Group’s Vault funding.

Build business and leadership skills in your community.

The aim of the Young Farmer Business Program Group's Vault Grant is to provide a “training for groups” grant to formal and informal groups (minimum of 3 members) who support young farmers and fishers, locally and regionally in NSW. The funds must be used for a project to develop the business and leadership skills of it’s members.

Activities should be targeting at least one of the following outcomes for young farmers and fishers:

  • knowledge and skills to improve social and business resilience
  • knowledge and skills to manage risk
  • knowledge and skills to execute effective plans
  • knowledge and skills to make decisions that ensure the viability of their agricultural/fishing businesses
  • access to new business ideas, tools and techniques
  • connect to other farmers/fishers and opportunities that enable entry and or expansion of agricultural/fishing businesses
