It’s not just farmers feeling the effects of this on-going drought, but also farming contractors and local rural businesses. Currently, Vinnies, the Salvos, the CWA and Lions are distributing $3,000 cash injection grants to many in need.
Please note you do not have to be a primary producer to apply for these grants. Ag-related businesses (for example, farm machinery mechanics and fencers) are also eligible.
This grant will remain open until funds are exhausted. The closure date will be announced on the CWA website.
