The ACT Government is administering the National On-Farm Emergency Water Infrastructure Rebate Scheme on behalf of the Australian Government. The scheme will run over 3 years from 1 July 2018 with the aim to improve farm resilience to drought by:
addressing animal welfare needs during drought
assisting primary producers to be more resilient for future droughts
assisting primary producers to be more productive through the installation of new water infrastructure
assisting in mitigating the degradation of natural watering points.
The Scheme offers a 25% rebate to eligible rural landholders for the costs associated with the purchase and installation of on-farm stock water infrastructure.
