ClosedGrant Closed: 30th of April 2022 or until expended Value: Up to $25,000 Run By: Rural Assistance Authority Further Information: https://www.raa.nsw.gov.au/grants/ewir

This scheme helps Australian farmers to better prepare, respond to and recover from drought. Primary producers and horticulture farmers can apply for rebates to buy and install on-farm water infrastructure to water livestock and permanent plantings.

Eligible farmers can claim up to 25% (of which at least 50% of the rebate will be provided by the relevant state or territory government) of expenses for on-farm water infrastructure up to a maximum total rebate of $25,000. 

You must be:

  • a primary producer or horticulture farmer 
  • a property owner, share farmer or lease holder
  • in an area defined as drought affected (visit your state or territory’s website for details)
  • in the grazing or horticulture industries.

Your new infrastructure must be:

  • for your own grazing livestock or permanent plantings (rebates do not apply to agisted stock)
  • purchased and installed for an animal welfare or permanent planting need and to improve your drought resilience.
