Farm Household Allowance data dashboard

Australian farmers are among the most productive and innovative in the world. Across the 88,000 farm businesses in Australia, our farmers are constantly assessing and adapting to change.

Farm Household Allowance (FHA) provides help to eligible farmers, and their partners, experiencing financial hardship. It offers planning and training for long-term financial improvements.

FHA is a package of assistance available to cash-strapped farming families, regardless of the source of the hardship. The assistance includes up to 4 years of fortnightly income support in every 10-year period.

Information on claim status and assistance available as at 30 June 2021. Updated monthly.
