Drought Community Outreach Events program

The Drought Community Outreach Program, in partnership with Rotary, brings services specific to farmers and their communities to their region for a drop-in style one-stop-shop.The National Drought and Flood Agency is bringing government and non-government agencies to rural and regional Australia to make it easier to access support and information to support farmers and rural and regional communities living through the immediate and longer-term effects of drought.

You will be able to get information and advice on low-interest loans, Farm Household Allowance, On-Farm Emergency Water Infrastructure Rebate Scheme, $3,000 Drought Community Support Initiative, and Rotary $500 household vouchers, for example.  

The events will include our local Regional Recovery Officers and representatives from Australian Government agencies such as the Australian Taxation Office, Regional Investment Corporation, Services Australia and NBN Co. State government agencies and non-government organisations with drought support info will also be at each event. Details for upcoming events will be regularly updated on this page.

You can also follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to get updates on future events.

Drought Community Outreach Events are being rolled out as COVID-19 restrictions are eased. Appropriate measures are in place to ensure they are run safely.
