Grants of up to $25,000 are available for affected producers to hire or purchase equipment and materials, clean up, remove debris, replace fencing and other costs associated with the recovery process. Producers should take photographs of the direct damage to accompany their application.
Producers need to show they are an eligible primary producer, within the declared disaster area and demonstrate they have suffered direct impact from the disaster.
The maximum grant amount is $25,000 and is available through two applications:
- An initial amount of up to $5,000 is available to support an initial claim. Evidence of the direct damage such as photographs, quotations, tax invoices and official receipts is required.
- A subsequent amount of up to $20,000 is available to support subsequent claims for which full evidence of payment is required.
