Have Your Say on Drought Assistance for Non-Farming Businesses

At Regional Development Australia Northern Inland, we are aware that most of the current drought focus has been on farmers and farm businesses, rather than the flow-on impacts to other businesses and the community. We are concerned that non-farm businesses cannot access government support or programs to help prepare for inevitable future droughts.

We are seeking to rectify this situation, and have two main objectives:

  1. Have governments create support mechanisms for non-farm businesses in drought-affected areas now.
  2. Have governments create better drought-preparedness policies for non-farm businesses going forward.

As we will require a solid evidence base to support our call to action, collating the experiences of businesses in our region is an important step in bringing about change. We have kept this survey as short as possible while also collecting enough information to create change, and it will take only 5 minutes to complete. All answers that are provided will be used in aggregate, and will not be identified to your business unless you provide us with permission to do so.

We appreciate you sharing your experiences before the 31st of October at:
