Emergency Drought Relief Package Extension Announced

Monday 18 November 2019
The NSW Government has announced an extension for the Emergency Drought Relief Package from 1 July 2019.

The drought in NSW has been ongoing since 2017.

  • 44.2% as being in Drought
  • 18.8% categorised as Drought Affected

The NSW Government has announced an extension for the Emergency Drought Relief Package from 1 July 2019. The Government will continue its Emergency Drought Relief package in 2019-20 to help alleviate some of the immediate financial pressures facing farmers and regional communities.

The Department of Primary Industries have put together a Drought Hub that can be used by individuals and communities to assist with Drought issues and provides answers to frequently asked questions.

A snapshot of the current seasonal conditions for NSW and Albury's drought status is available from the Department of Primary Industries.
