Donated Fodder Transport Subsidy

A subsidy is available for the cost of transporting donated fodder organised by community groups or other organisations within NSW to a central location for distribution to properties affected by drought and other emergencies.

This subsidy will pay for 100% of the costs of transporting donated fodder from within NSW up to a maximum of $5 per kilometre (plus GST) to a maximum eligible distance of 1,500 kilometres.

Before arranging transport, the coordinating community group and transport operator must:

  • obtain approval from the RAA prior to transporting the fodder
  • claim the cost of transporting the fodder direct form the RAA
  • claim forms must be submitted to the RAA together with tax invoices and/or receipts for expenses incurred
  • claims must be made within three months of the RAA's approval and
  • claims must benefit 3 or more primary producers

This subsidy is limited with $500,000 available in each financial year.
