Your application has been successfully submitted.
Rural Aid has received your application for mouse plague recovery financial assistance.
If you meet the criteria, this one-off application for $1000 will be offered as a pre-paid visa card.
Upon approval of your application, you will be notified once payment has been made and reconciled with our accounts department.
This assistance does not exclude you from receiving fodder or other forms of assistance, but does preclude you from receiving another cash donation for this mouse plague recovery program in the future.
Rural Aid also offers a job-posting platform called the Farm Army, which connects volunteers with farmers in need. If you need assistance recovering from the mouse plague, you can post a job to find volunteers that may be available in your area.
Rural Aid also offers free, confidential wellbeing counselling to registered farmers. Rural Aid counsellors offer relaxed chats about farmers’ overall wellbeing, as well as give professional advice to help farmers navigate a crisis. Please call 1300 327 624 during business hours, to find out more about this service. Rural Aid counsellors are specifically trained to help farmers and their communities.
Please note, if you need mental wellbeing support outside business hours, Lifeline can be contacted on 13 11 14.
