Community Water Supply Program
The Community Water Supply Program supports regional communities to prepare for periods of low rainfall in the dryland agricultural zone receiving less than 600 mm annual average rainfall. The program aims to encourage the planning and establishment of reliable non-potable water supplies to meet emergency farmland water needs and reduce scheme water use. This highly successful program has assisted broad-acre farming communities and towns to establish or improve non-potable water supplies for 20 years.
Historically the Community Water Supply Program provided grants of up to $100 000 for community non-potable water supply improvements. The program will re-open for applications under Watering WA Towns in late 2016 with a broader eligibility criteria.
