Horticultural Netting Grants for Victorian Horticulturalists

ag vic

Grants are available for eligible horticulture enterprises operating in Victoria. The Program will provide up to 50% of eligible costs to purchase and commercially install new horticultural netting (fixed and demountable), to a maximum of $150,000 (ex GST). Applicants may also apply for an allowance of $7,000 per ha up to $50,000 to self-install netting within the $150,000 cap, subject to some conditions and exclusions, such as wages and installation equipment.

The number of grants in the Program is subject to funds being available.

The purpose of the expanded Horticultural Netting Program (the Program) is to provide funding to eligible horticultural enterprises (excluding wine grapes) for the purchase and installation of new netting over established production areas (a ‘project’).

This expanded Program builds on the previous $4.67 million Commonwealth Government funded Program for the apple and pear industry, providing an additional $11.22 million for horticultural enterprises, excluding wine grapes. The Department of Energy, Environment and Climate Action (DEECA) has agreed to implement the expanded Program on the Australian Government’s behalf.

Applications are now open for this program. The application period for this  program is between 5 February 2024 and 5 pm on 8 April 2024.
