More support for bushfire-impacted primary producers across Australia was announced on 23 June 2020. The forestry industry, wine grape producers, and apple growers will soon benefit from $86 million in funding provided by the Australian Government.
The National Bushfire Recovery Agency is working with State Governments to open these programs as soon as possible. Further information, including details on the application process and eligibility criteria, will be made available soon.
Support for wine grape producers Wine grape producers can access up to $10,000 to support recovery efforts and rebuild resilient businesses.
To date, most assistance has been directed to fire impacted areas. But we know smoke taint damage extends beyond the fire scar. Worth $5 million, this grants program is targeted at businesses in smoke impacted wine regions which are not currently activated for the $75,000 primary producer grants.
