Rural Relief Fund

In the unfortunate instance when disasters like drought, flood or bush-fires occur, the need for assistance is immediate. With human and animal welfare a priority, the Rural Relief Fund, through the provision of emergency grants, can act quickly to support those most affected.

In times of crisis and financial hardship, the Rural Relief Fund supports farming families and their communities in their time of most need. Offering grants of up to $2,500 crisis relief is gifted to eligible families based on urgency and the level of support required.

The priority of family and animal welfare is taken into account, and as such disbursed funds can cover everything from basic household goods including food to utility bills to the repair of damaged fences.
