Farm Household Allowance

Mutual obligation requirements

To get Farm Household Allowance, you must agree to follow the mutual obligations requirements.

  1. Complete a Farm Financial Assessment.
    Financial advisors can help you do this. The assessment looks at your, your partner’s and your farm’s financial position.

  2. Sign a Financial Improvement Agreement.
    This aims to help improve your financial circumstances. A Farm Household case officer will work with you on this and anything that may affect your agreement.

  3. Have regular contact with a Farm Household Case Officer.
    They'll meet with you every 3 months to talk about your progress. This can be in person or over the phone.
