Everything You Need to Know About The Farm Household Allowance
The Farm Household Allowance provides financial support for farmers and their partners to assist in improving their financial circumstances. This may be through training for financial improvements long-term, as well as income support for up to four years.
I’m going to show you how you can apply for the Farm Household Allowance and see what payments you may be eligible for!
If you’re eligible for the Farm Household Allowance, you (and your partner) can receive:
an Activity Supplement of up to $4,000 to pay for training to improve your financial position
a payment of approximately $500 per fortnight for a maximum period of 4 cumulative years
a Farm Household Case Officer to work with you to assist you in improving your financial circumstances.
According to business.gov.au, in order to be eligible for the Farm Household Allowance, you must:
be a farmer or a partner of a farmer
be 16 years or older
contribute labour and capital to an Australian farm, or are the partner of a farmer who does
have income and assets below certain amounts
have had less than 4 years of Farm Household Allowance.
Your farm must also:
have a significant commercial purpose.
- This is based on the purpose of your farm, prospect for profit, consistency of activity, whether your farm runs as a business and the size, scale and permanency of your farm activity.
