The Regional Growth Fund provides financial assistance to eligible livestock primary producers, abattoirs, and sale yards to establish livestock underpasses connecting farming properties (or abattoir or sale yard) that are crossed by public roads. A total of $3 million in grants is available for the construction and installation of livestock underpass infrastructure.
To be eligible for a livestock underpass grant you must be either:
- an entity operating a licensed abattoir or livestock sale yard
- a primary producer who has earned more than 50% of your gross income for the past 2 years from your primary production business, under normal seasonal circumstances and registered as a primary production business with the Australian Tax Office
