Rural Assistance Authority Drought Assistance Fund

From 1 July 2020 the NSW Government has lifted the cap for the Drought Assistance Fund (DAF) to $100,000 per primary producer.

The NSW Government is offering interest-free loans to primary producers to implement systems and management practices that enhance the sustainability of their farm business. The loan term is seven years and there are no repayments required in the first two years. This loan will fund:

  • the transport of stock, fodder and water
  • genetic banking of breeding herds
  • installation of on-farm fodder and water infrastructure
  • activities that promote profitability and resilience as a result of the on-farm investment
