The Tasmanian Government is funding a grant program to assist farmers in the drought affected municipalities of Tasman, Sorell, Glamorgan Spring Bay, Southern Midlands and Break O’Day to tackle weeds issues that have been exacerbated by drought.

The grant program is administered by the respective council and will provide a rebate of up to 66% of the costs of weed control up to a value of $2500.  There is a total $30,000 available for farmers in the Tasman Municipality so it is expected that around 10 projects will be approved with any remaining funds going to capacity building to support all farmers with weed control.

Details of the program, the eligibility requirements and the application form are presented below:
