As you may be aware, the Australian Government has appointed an independent panel to review the Farm Household Allowance (FHA), and I am writing to invite you to participate.
Consultation has now opened for the review and will close on 2 November 2018.
FHA provides eligible farmers and their partners experiencing financial hardship with assistance through planning and training for long-term financial improvements as well as income support. The expert panel conducting the review includes: Mrs Michele Lawrence (Chair), Ms Georgie Somerset and Professor Robert Slonim.
How to get involved
You can contribute to the review by: completing a survey, making a written submission or attending a face-to-face session, through the Have your Say website.
Please encourage your members, colleagues or other contacts to also provide feedback by making a submission. To assist with this, we have prepared a digital support kit (attached) which provides a range of resources that can be used in your publications, webpages and social media to highlight the consultation on the review. We would appreciate it if you could please use this kit to inform your members and stakeholders of the review.
I look forward to your contribution to this review.
