Support for carbon farming
Support will soon be available for landholders to develop carbon farming initiatives, improve land management and access the carbon credit market.
A new Carbon Farming Advice Rebate pilot program will be aligned with the Landcare Action Grants program, which has been expanded to include carbon farming.
Under the Carbon Farming Advice Rebate
pilot program, landholders will be able to claim a rebate of up to $10,000 for advice sought about the costs and benefits of accessing carbon credits, auditing requirements, and on-ground actions that are eligible for carbon credits.
Under the expanded Landcare Action Grants
program landholders will be able to access grant funding for on-ground works needed to access the carbon credit market. Landholders will still be able to apply for funding from the Grants program for practical on-ground works for sustainable agriculture and river care activities.
From October workshops will be held across the State to help landowners understand the carbon credit market and how they can get assistance from Government to support the development of their carbon farming project.
