Lessen impact on farmers and community

Mr Chester said this was part of the Federal Governments investment in drought impacted communities. "Ensuring our communities and agricultural sectors are prepared for drought, helps to lessen the impact on our farmers and the wider community. The program will fund events, activities, training and small-scale infrastructure that assists communities in building their drought resilience capacity," Mr Chester said.

"This is part of a total investment of $19.2 million to 2023-24 in leadership, mentoring, community capacity building and small community infrastructure to help build drought resilience, supporting farmers and their communities. I encourage all eligible organisations with projects in Gippsland to apply and help boost the regions drought resilience."

The Future Drought Funds Networks to Build Drought Resilience program is administered by the Foundation for Rural & Regional Renewal. Applications close November 15, 2021. For further information or to apply visit the Future Drought Funds Networks to Build Drought Resilience.
