Don’t wait, apply now for VFF Farmers Fund Dairy Grants

The 3rd round of funding is now available but applications must be in by the end of March 2017.

Already the Farmers’ Fund has given away more than $1,200,000 in grants to promote a resilient and sustainable dairy industry in south eastern Australia.

However there are changes to this round – the maximum grant will be reduced to $10,000. The number of applications in rounds one and two greatly exceeded the number of available grants that could be offered. This change will enable more farmers to be assisted  whilst still providing an amount adequate to support a meaningful contribution to improving a farms’ operation.

In response to these changes, previous applications will not automatically be reconsidered in round three. If you wish to reply, you will need to resubmit a new application form.

Application forms and further information about the grant program can be accessed at the Victorian Farmers Federation website, email or contact 1300 882 833.  Or contact us on 1300 769 489 for assistance from a Rural Financial Counsellor.
