The Drought Hub is coming to Forbes

The Department of Primary Industries is bringing its mobile drought hub to Forbes saleyards on Tuesday November 12.

The bus will be at Tuesday's sheep sale from 10am to 2pm with staff from the DPI and Rural Assistance Authority.

They will be there to help answer your questions, fill out forms or check the status of any applications you've made.

No need to book an appointment.

DPI's Deputy Director General of Engagement and Industry Assistance Brett Fifield said the drought assistance bus was touring the state.

"We are committed to connecting with communities, industries and people; therefore I would encourage anyone that needs support or struggling with what help is available to visit the team," he said.

The current drought is a prolonged and severe event affecting many parts of the state. For all drought related advice or assistance please visit droughthub.nsw.gov.au

Alternatively, you can contact the DPI Rural Resilience Team, Rural Financial Counsellors, or your Local Land Services representatives, who can facilitate access to appropriate assistance measures.
