Flood-affected agricultural processing businesses are being urged to apply for further recovery support through the $22 million Supply Chain Support Program, co-funded by the Federal and State governments.
Applications for the Supply Chain Support Program are now open. For more information and to apply, visit: www.nsw.gov.au/supplychainsupport.
Federal Member for Page Kevin Hogan said the funding available will help agricultural processing businesses by repairing, rebuilding and improving essential infrastructure.
“Up to $2 million per application is available for eligible processors that experienced direct flood damage to support projects such as the replacement, repair, enhancement or adaptation of existing plant and equipment,” Mr Hogan said.
“There is also $250,000 available for processing businesses indirectly impacted by floods through major supply chain disruptions.”
“These grants will help play an important role in supporting those in the sector who are trying to rebuild and continue producing after overwhelming losses,” Mr Hogan said.
“Grants like these keep people in jobs because machinery and vital equipment can continue to operate.”
“Applications for funding are now open, and I urge eligible local agricultural processing businesses to make the most of this opportunity and apply for this package.”
