Drought: We are with you

As the impact of the drought continues, Vinnies is doing what we have always done – providing a hand up to people in need.

Vinnies and the Salvation Army are delivering the Australian Government's Drought Community Support Initiative Round 2 (DCSI), and the eligible Local Government Areas have been divided between the two organisations. Before applying, please check which organisation is providing assistance for your LGA by clicking here.

If you are a farmer, farm worker or farm supplier/contractor who is doing it tough because of the drought you may be entitled to receive a one-off payment of up to $3,000 funded by the DCSI.
