The Australian and NSW Governments are working together to deliver $12 million in Federal rebates to drought affected livestock farmers for the purchase and upgrade on-farm water infrastructure.
The On-Farm Emergency Water Infrastructure Rebate scheme is available to eligible primary producers who can claim a rebate of 25% of the cost for; new purchases, and installation of pipes, water storages and water pumps, de-silting dams, and associated power supplies such as generators. This Rebate scheme can be applied to costs incurred from 1st July 2018.
The maximum that can be claimed is $25,000 per farm enterprise. The availability of rebates is subject to funds being available. No rebates will be offered beyond the allocated funding of $12 million.
Applications close 30 June 2021 or when the funding allocation is exhausted, whichever occurs first.
The Water Infrastructure Rebate is available to farmers in NSW who own and operate a farm business and applies to the purchase and installation of emergency water infrastructure for livestock. Download the Guidelines PDF, 133.76 KB for full details of what you can claim (sections 3-5).
