On-Farm Emergency Water Infrastructure Rebate Scheme

The South Australian Government will match Commonwealth Government funding for the On-Farm Emergency Water Infrastructure Rebate Scheme to drought affected farmers who invest in urgently-needed on-farm water infrastructure.

Eligible farmers can now access a 50% rebate – or up to $50,000 – on new water infrastructure purchases and installation costs for on-farm water infrastructure to help provide water to livestock or permanent horticulture plantings in the current drought and better improve drought resilience.
