National On-Farm Emergency Water Infrastructure Rebate Scheme
The Western Australian Government has reached an agreement with the Federal Government to provide funding to farmers who applied under the National On-Farm Emergency Water Infrastructure Rebate Scheme. Due to significant demand the scheme was oversubscribed, and the previous funding was fully allocated. The additional funding provided through this agreement will see a further 511 farmers with applications already submitted receive a rebate for water infrastructure installed on their farm.
The Department of Water and Environmental Regulation is working with the Federal Government on the formal funding agreement, and when in place, the department will contact the affected farmers directly to provide further information on the assessment and payment of grants.
A media statement on the announcement is available here.
No further applications are being accepted by the department at this time.
