New support role for farm families coming off FHA

Rural Business Support has a new role to assist families at the end of their three-year Farm Household Allowance (FHA) period.

Rural Financial Counsellor Julianne Fiebig has been appointed to the FHA Coordinator position, which covers South Australia and the Northern Territory.

Julianne can:

  • Provide phone and email support to assist you in your final dealings with Centrelink should you need to supply copies of tax returns or assess any debts.
  • Help you to apply for other support such as low income Health Care Cards.
  • Assist you with accessing other grants that your business may be eligible for, including the Farm Business Improvement Concessional loan.
  • Identify if your business is eligible for further support and, if it is, refer you to your local Rural Financial Counsellor who can work with you to develop an action plan for your business.

Julianne works Monday, Tuesday and Thursday and can be contacted on 0477 747 765 or at: j.fiebig@ruralbusinesssupport.org.au. Alternatively, please complete the form below and Julianne will be in touch soon.
