Grape vines sustained enormous damage in the December storms.The State Government has announced additional disaster assistance for primary producers affected by the Sunraysia storm late last year.
Visiting Mildura today, Premier Daniel Andrews and Agriculture Minister Jaala Pulford announced recovery grants of up to $10,000 would be available to eligible primary producers in the Mildura and Swan Hill Rural City Councils.
This means Victorian growers have access to assistance on par with that offered to NSW growers following the December 3 storm that significantly damaged crops including table and wine grape crops.
“The recovery grants will give our Sunraysia growers a much needed boost,” Ms Pulford said.
The recovery grants are in addition to concessional low interest rate loans already assisting affected growers in the region.
Mr Andrews has also written to the Federal Government requesting the activation of Category C Recovery Grants, to further help local growers get back on their feet.
