The NSW Government’s Farm Innovation Fund is an incentive-based initiative to assist farmers in NSW to identify and address risks to their farming enterprises, improve permanent farm infrastructure and ensure long-term productivity and sustainable land use, aiding in meeting changes to seasonal conditions.
Eligible activities include (but are not limited to):
- Drought Preparedness (such as stock and domestic water supplies or planting perennial species)
- Environmental Improvements (such as soil conservation, erosion control, and solar power conversions)
- Farm Infrastructure (such as fodder storage facilities, fencing, sheds and irrigation system upgrades)
- Natural resources (such as tree planting and disaster mitigation works like flood pads).
Loans of up to 100% of the cost of the works can be provided, over a loan period of up to 20 years (dependent on the amount borrowed).
