Drought Assistance Information
The Farm Household Allowance is a payment to help farmers and their partners facing financial hardship. There will be an information session held in Warwick on Saturday 13 October.
The Southern Downs was drought declared in May 2018 following extremely dry conditions and little to no rainfall for many months.
While we can’t make it rain, there are other ways our farmers can be supported through this incredibly tough time.
There are a number of government and community drought-assistance and financial support programs available to farmers who are adversely affected by drought.
