NSW Government announces extra $500m in drought assistance for struggling farmers

10 August 2018

Premier Gladys Berejiklian recently announced an additional $500 million in emergency funding to help drought-affected farmers.

Mrs Berejiklian said the additional funding will help farmers who have faced an "unforgivably dry winter".

The three major elements of the $500 million NSW Emergency Drought Relief Package are:

  • $190 million for Drought Transport Subsidies
  • $100 million for cutting the cost of farming fees and charges – by waiving Local Land Services rates, waiving fixed water charges in rural and regional areas, and waiving class one agricultural vehicle registration costs
  • $150 million to bolster the Farm Innovation Fund (FIF) infrastructure program by waiving refunding interest charges on all existing loans for the 2017/18 and 2018/19
