Vic Drought Hub - Farmland 1

Part of the Future Drought Fund, this program’s objective is to fund activities that support adoption of proven and existing Australian and/or internationally generated R&D practices and technology that:

  • reduce the impacts of drought on agricultural productivity and/or enable a quicker recovery of farmers and their lands from drought
  • have potential to be adopted at a large scale (either across multiple farms, a farming system, landscapes, regions or industries)
  • can demonstrate public benefits.

Under the program, eligible applicants can apply for grants of between $100,000 and $3 million (GST exclusive) per application for projects up to 24 months. Successful projects must be carried out between June 2023 and June 2025. Applicants will be required to contribute funding (co-contribution/s) to the delivery of the project.
