What the Government fund means to you…
If the fencing on your property was affected by the 2019/2020 bushfire crisis you could be eligible to receive up to $5,000 per kilometre to contribute towards the replacement of damaged fencing that adjoin public lands.
If you’ve already spent the money to replace your fences and your fences are eligible, you can claim to have that cost reimbursed.
The NSW Government has just announced this grant package with funds of $209 million to help landholders that sustained damage to their fencing in the Northern and Southern fires in late 2019 and early 2020. The purpose of the fund is to replace damaged fencing where a boundary is shared with public lands.
These includes properties that have boundaries adjoining:
- National parks
- Forestry Corporation land
- Travelling stock reserves
- Crown reserves, tenured roads and leases
- Roads managed by Roads and Maritime Services or Local Government.
