The Drought Community Support Initiative (DCSI) is an Australian Government funded project that provides a one-off payment to farmers, farm workers and farm suppliers/contractors affected by the drought and living in an eligible Local Government Area (LGA).

DCSI Round II is a second round of funding being provided by the Commonwealth Government under this initiative. In this round, there is $30,000,000 of funding to be distributed to eligible households, through payments of $3,000. Vinnies and the Salvos have been asked to distribute the funds and will each provide $15,000,000 of assistance.
