Farm Household Allowance

The Farm Household Allowance (FHA) will help farmers with their daily living expenses, and is available to farmers Australia wide, without the need for a drought declaration. This allowance will provide eligible farmers and their partners with up to four years of income support. This payment is equivalent to the Newstart Allowance and is paid fortnightly.

Recipients will receive an additional $3000 Activity Supplement for professional advice or training, and will be supported by case managers as they undertake these activities to improve their situation and prepare for the future. The total farm net asset upper limit is $5,000,000. An additional payment of up to $6,000 is available to eligible FHA recipients in the 2018/19 financial year.
