Funding will be available to eligible organisations to support projects that result in improved farm safety outcomes nationally.
The objective of the grant opportunity is better and more effective communication to farmers and those that live and work on Australian farms and in related industries, to improve their understanding and take up of the behaviours and practices associated with farm safety.
The grant opportunity will support projects focused on education and capacity building in 2 priority areas:
