Drought proofing grants available to Gippsland farming communities
More help is available to farming communities in Gippsland to help them weather future droughts.
The Federal Government is offering $11.2 million through two competitive grant programs to build and maintain drought resilience. Supported by the Future Drought Fund, they would help producers, their families and farming communities in Gippsland.
“Many parts of region have experienced welcome high rainfalls, but there are areas where dams are yet to fill and farmers still need more rain,” said the Member for Gippsland, Darren Chester.
