Farm Household Allowance

The Farm Household Allowance (FHA) is an Australian Government support package that’s available to eligible famers and their partners experiencing hardship (including drought) for up to four cumulative years. FHA gives farmers breathing space to implement plans and seek training so they are better placed to sustain their farming business.

The Australian Government has made some important changes to the program:

  • Applications must be submitted before June 30 2019.
  • The asset threshold will be temporarily increased to $5 million to allow thousands more farmers to access this package.

To apply for the Farm Household Allowance, you can either call the Farmer Assistance Hotline on 132 316 or online at Farm Household Allowance or download an application form at
