Dairy Development Grants

This program is now closed.

The Victorian Government’s Dairy Development Grants is a component of the Government’s assistance package aimed at supporting the Victorian Dairy Industry.

In short, the program offered Grants of up to $5,000 per dairy farm applicant / business to implement on-farm infrastructure improvements that assist business rebuilding, restructure and production efficiencies.

The Grant has been positively received by dairy farm businesses and now the number of applications received exceeds the funding available under this program. As a result, applications for this Grant are now closed.
