LISMORE MP Janelle Saffin is encouraging eligible businesses or co-operatives to apply for grants under the NSW Government’s $22-million Supply Chain Support Program.
Ms Saffin says the new program is aimed at supporting the recovery of processing businesses within the primary industry supply chains that were impacted by the February and March 2022 floods (AGRN 1012).
“Funding is available for businesses or co-operatives that sustained direct flood damage or were indirectly impacted by disruptions to their supply chains,” Ms Saffin says.
“I’m aware that there was widespread and prolonged disruption to supply chains because of the floods so I’m glad this has been recognised with a program co-funded by the Australian and NSW governments.”
Grant amounts range from $100,000 and $2million with applications closing on 20 January 2023.
Eligible applicants must be a business or co-operative that is a first receiver and processor in the supply or value chain of the aquaculture (including fisheries), horticulture (blueberries, macadamias, pecans, vegetables, tea tree) or agriculture (beef, dairy, soybeans, sugarcane, intensive livestock) industries.
