Farm Household Allowance

A payment for farming families in financial hardship.

To get this you must:

  • be a farmer or partner of a farmer
  • meet the income and assets test limits
  • meet mutual obligation requirements.

A farmer must contribute significant labour and capital to a farm.

Read the full conditions under who can get it.

See how Farm Household Allowance (FHA) can help you.

The rate of FHA increased from 20 September 2023. This means you may get a partial increase in your first payment after this date, and the full increase after that.

This is in addition to the Consumer Price Indexation (CPI) increase on the same date.
