Under the new $3 million ‘Primary Industries Workers Regional Travel and Accommodation Support Scheme’, the State Government is providing up to $3360 for accommodation costs, with travel support for agricultural workers also to be finalised in coming weeks.

The scheme is supported by the ‘Work and Wander out Yonder’ campaign.

An accommodation rebate of $40 per night and a relocation and travel allowance of up to $500 is available to people relocating more than 100kms from their usual place of residence to take up a regional agricultural, fisheries or food processing work.

The rebate scheme will take effect from 21 September 2020.
Claims are paid in arrears as a rebate and can be submitted from 21 October 2020.

The scheme is currently being finalised. Please register your interest, by completing the details below, to be notified when scheme applications open.
