The NSW Government has announced a new Drought Transport Fund that will provide up to $20,000 in low interest loans, with a two-year interest and repayment free period.

The loans, available through the Rural Assistance Authority are intended to help with the cost of transport for water, feed and livestock. The loan term is 7 years. While available to offset the cost of transport, farmers are required to have a pre-approved loan before organising transport.
