Support for agribusiness during natural disasters

After a natural disaster, assess how your business has been affected. This will help you know what to do to recover.

A recovery plan can help minimise losses and get your business running again after an incident.

Once you have completed your clean-up and assessed the state of your business, you can begin the rebuilding process.

Health and wellbeing


The Rural Financial Counselling Service (RFCS) provides free rural financial counselling to farmers, fishing enterprises, forestry growers and harvesters, and small, related businesses who are suffering financial hardship.

Landholders can apply to have their next leasehold rental payment deferred.

The Farm Household Allowance provides money for basic living expenses to eligible farm families experiencing hardship. You do not have to be in a drought-declared area to apply.
