ClosedGrant Closed: 28th of January 2022 Value: Up to $10,000 Run By: Rural Assistance Authority Further Information: https://www.raa.nsw.gov.au/disaster-assistance/rural-landholders-grant

The Rural Landholder’s Grant seeks to alleviate the personal and financial distress and assist in the recovery of rural landholders who have suffered direct damage to their assets as a result of the storms and floods that occurred from 10 March 2021 onwards (AGRN 960).

This Grant is designed to assist rural landholders who have been affected by the storms and floods and are ineligible for declared natural disaster assistance because they do not meet the 50% of income from primary production requirement.

Grants are provided to help pay for the costs of clean up, reinstatement activities and emergency measures associated with the immediate recovery of primary production enterprises. Eligible claims may include:

  • Hiring or leasing equipment or materials to clean premises, property or equipment.
  • Removing and disposing of debris, damaged goods and materials including injured or dead livestock.
  • Repairing or replacing fencing and/or other essential property infrastructure.
  • Purchasing and transporting fodder or feed for livestock.
  • Replacing livestock.
  • Replacing lost or damaged plants, salvaging crops, repairing or restoring fields.
  • Repairing, reconditioning or replacing essential plant or equipment.
  • Maintaining the health of livestock.
  • Paying additional wages to an employee to assist with clean-up work (above and beyond normal wage expenditure, i.e. day-to-day staffing).
  • Repairing buildings (except dwellings, unless they are used for staff accommodation).
  • Other claims consistent with these guidelines and agreed by the Rural Assistance Authority (RAA).

All LGAs in the Northern Inland are listed as defined disaster areas for the storms and floods from the 10th of March 2021 for this grant.
