On-farm Emergency Water Infrastructure Rebate Scheme

16 November 2023

The On-farm Emergency Water Infrastructure Rebate Scheme (Rebate Scheme) offers a rebate to primary producers and horticultural farmers to purchase and install new on-farm water infrastructure, or repair and replace damaged infrastructure.  The rebates must address animal welfare needs, permanent planting needs, drought resilience, and/or recovery from natural disasters. 

Eligible applicants can receive rebates of 25 per cent of the costs incurred up to a maximum of $25,000.  

Recipients will be required to demonstrate that they are from the grazing or horticulture industries, and they are drought affected or impacted by natural disaster.

Applications must be received by 31 December 2023, with approved applicants then having until 29 March 2024 to submit claims.
