Farm Safety Rebate Scheme - this program is now closed

The Farm Safety Rebate Scheme is now fully subscribed, and the program is currently closed to new applications.

The $3 million Scheme was very popular with Victorian Farmers, and Rural Finance received an overwhelming number of applications.

The Minister for Agriculture, Mary-Anne Thomas announced a further $2 million towards the Scheme for applications received prior to the close of the program on 30 March 2021. 

Existing applications are being processed in order of receipt, and individual applicants are being contacted as soon as possible to confirm eligibility.  

If you have any further questions, please contact Rural Finance on 1800 260 425.
