rail infrastructureVictoria’s new $200 million Agriculture Infrastructure and Jobs Fund has been officially launched. The Fund is a major boost to Victoria’s agriculture sector that will better position our farmers to make the most of growing export opportunities.

The $150 million Major Capital Works program is the first pool of funding available through the Fund.

The Major Capital Works Program will support projects beyond the farm gate that benefit the agriculture sector through more efficient use of public infrastructure.

This includes practical projects to reduce costs to farmers, agribusinesses and allied industries including transport, irrigation, ICT and energy projects.

Applications for Major Capital Works funding can be made at any time.
