Other Featured Grants
There are also a range of additional grants, funding and support programs across NSW and Australia for young farmers and fishers to take advantage of. The Young Farmer Business Program has handpicked a selection of subsidies, rebates and more and brought them together in this one easy and convenient location. Young farmers and fishers may be eligible for funding through a diverse range of organisations, from the Rural Assistance Authority, Regional Development Australia, Jobs for NSW, the Regional Investment Corporation, Local Land Services and Austrade.
You generally have to meet certain criteria to be eligible, so read the fineprint and see which opportunities are available to your business! Besides funding assistance, these opportunities can help your business grow by building your skills and knowledge.
The Young Farmer Business Program has also worked with Farm Table to identify some relevant opportunities for young farmers and fishers, who are looking for assistance in getting a project off the ground, innovating or expanding – check them out below!
