Forestry Contractor Resilience Program extended until January 2021

Following a forest industry roundtable yesterday, the Tasmanian Liberal Government yesterday announced that the Forestry Contractor Resilience Program will be extended to 29 January 2021 to further support Tasmanian forestry contractors to navigate the impact and challenges of COVID-19 on the industry.

Tasmania’s forestry contractors can apply under the $500,000 Forestry Contractor Resilience Program for funding to improve their business practices, which is being delivered through Rural Business Tasmania.

Under the program, Tasmanian forestry harvest and haulage contractors have the opportunity to work with specialists in business and financial management to identify future opportunities and build stability and resilience into their operations
