ClosedGrant Closed: 9th of January 2023 - 9:00 pm Value: $100,000 to $3 Million Run By: Australian Government Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry Further Information: https://www.grants.gov.au/Go/Show?GoUuid=9b4379ed-c333-41c6-a565-fe3fb565da49

The Future Drought Fund is a long-term investment fund that provides a sustainable source of funding to help Australian farmers and agricultural-dependent communities and businesses become more prepared for, and resilient to, the impacts of drought. From July 2020, $100 million is available each year from the Fund to invest in drought resilience programs.

The objective of this program is to fund activities that support increased adoption, including through demonstration, of proven and existing (Australian and international) research and development (R&D) drought resilience practices and technology that:

  • reduce the impacts of drought on agricultural productivity and/or enable a quicker recovery of farmers and their lands from drought
  • have potential to be adopted at a large scale (either across multiple farms, a farming system, landscapes, regions or industries)
  • can demonstrate public benefits.
