The Goulburn Broken CMA, on behalf of the Consortium, is currently negotiating with funding bodies the potential for future funding rounds.
Funding is released in rounds. Round 5 Registrations of Interest for projects now have NOW CLOSED.
The Victorian Farm Modernisation Project (VFMP) includes a final round of funding of $20 million, but this is still subject to Victoria meeting Murray Darling Basin Plan requirements. If the final VFMP round (Farm Water Program Round 6) is needed, a call for projects is expected in early to mid-2017. No details on $/ML or percentage transfer are available for Round 6 at this point, as this still needs to be negotiated between the State & Commonwealth Governments. It is known that a Whole Farm Plan will be required to meet upcoming funding eligibility requirements. Therefore, it is recommended irrigators review these and update them if necessary. Irrigators are also encouraged to begin discussions on delivery system connections to properties as soon as possible with Goulburn-Murray Water Connections Program modernisation coordinators.
Further details will be provided when available.
