Emergency Water Infrastructure Rebate Scheme Round 2

The NSW Government and Commonwealth have together contributed $30 million in additional funding to reopen the highly successful Emergency Water Infrastructure Rebate (EWIR) program. New applicants in NSW can now access funding under the expanded EWIR scheme through the Rural Assistance Authority.

The EWIR scheme is designed to support NSW primary producers to invest in drought-proofing infrastructure to build resilience now and in future dry periods. The rebate provides eligible primary producers access to a 25 per cent rebate, up to $25,000, on purchases and installation costs of water infrastructure.

Applicants completing new works will have three months from approval of their application to complete the proposed works and provide invoices to the RAA to claim the rebate. Claims can only be paid until the closing date or earlier if available funds are expended.
