Farmers, fishers, foresters, and small agricultural businesses who have taken a financial hit will get more help, with the Albanese Government investing an extra $1.7 million in the Rural Financial Counselling Service.

Minister for Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry, Murray Watt says the extra funding would help producers and small-related businesses who are at risk of or experiencing financial hardship to access independent financial counselling.

Minister Watt says the Rural Financial Counselling Service provides access to qualified professionals, and tailored support unique to each primary producer’s situation, at no cost to the person.

He says this service is provides hands-on support for members of the ag industry to help them plot a way forward for their business and encouraged all primary producers to access the Service before reaching crisis point.

Primary producers can find out more information, including how to access RFCS assistance by visiting the Department’s page.
