Funds for rural financial counsellors

The federal government has provided an extra $5 million for the Rural Financial Counselling Service as part of its response to the devastating drought affecting the whole of NSW, Queensland, north-west Victoria and eastern South Australia. Rural financial counsellors provide financial options and support to help farmers make the right decision for their business.
