The FarmReady program ceased 30 June 2012. The program aimed to boost training opportunities for primary producers and Indigenous land managers, and enable industry, farming groups and natural resource management groups develop strategies to adapt and respond to the impacts of climate change.
Two grants were available through the FarmReady program:
FarmReady Reimbursement Grants - primary producers, wild game harvesters and Indigenous land managers were able to claim up to $1500 each financial year to attend approved training courses, with funding also available to cover excess travel, accommodation and child care expenses.
FarmReady Industry Grants – up to $80,000 each financial year was provided to eligible industry, farming and natural resource management groups for projects that develop strategies to manage climate change impacts.
