The Australian and Western Australian governments are working together to deliver $4.6 million in national rebates to livestock farmers and pastoralists in rural Western Australia for on-farm water infrastructure.

About the rebate
The rebate is for 25% up to a maximum of $25 000 for the purchase of new water infrastructure, delivery and installation to address animal welfare needs and improves resilience to drought.
Eligible items include water storage devices such as tanks and troughs, pipes, fittings and pumps associated with water distribution systems, new bores and the desilting of dams by a contractor.
Rebates can be applied to costs incurred after 30 June 2018, and applications close 30 April 2021 or when the funding allocation is exhausted, whichever occurs first.
