Supporting Our Neighbours – Fencing Financial Assistance
South East Local Land Services appreciate that many landholders are still on the long road to recovery after last summer’s devastating bushfire season, and are here to help.
Funding is still available through the Supporting Our Neighbours program to help landholders replace bushfire damaged boundary fencing bordering public lands.
This money can also be issued retrospectively, so even if you have already rebuilt your boundary fences, you can still receive this grant.
If eligible, you can receive a one-off grant of up to $5,000 per kilometre to purchase fencing materials. Where there was existing exclusion fencing bordering public land, landholders may be eligible for up to $10,000/km.
You will find this is one of the easiest programs to access and all you need to do is fill out a short online form or contact us by phone.
It will only take a few minutes to get started and we have a team of dedicated Boundary Fence Coordinators ready to work with you to identify your needs and ensure the funds flow as soon as possible.
We are encouraging people not to self-assess, but rather contact our Boundary Fence Coordinators to help you through this process. Get started by completing the online form or call the team on 1300 778 080.
