RWA is working as a delivery partner with the Australian Government in a trial roll-out of the Commonwealth On-Farm Further Irrigation Efficiency (COFFIE) Program.
The COFFIE Program funds works by Murray-Darling Basin irrigators to modernise all aspects of farm water systems in return for the water efficiency savings achieved. It is not a buyback scheme.
Works proposals can be submitted at any time giving flexibility and allowing better customisation of projects to irrigator needs. Approval decisions occur within ten business days of proposals being submitted, saving time and providing greater certainty for irrigators.
You can find out more about the COFFIE program at The Department of Agriculture and Water Resources.
