Fruit Fly Grower Transitional Assistance Package
The Fruit Fly Grower Transitional Assistance Package provides targeted support to commercial growers impacted by the fruit fly detection in Tasmania in early 2018. The package included grant funding under the Grower Transitional Assistance Program (GTAP) and a Fruit Fly Concessional Loan Scheme.
Please note: the Grower Transitional Assistance Program has now closed.
The Fruit Fly Concessional Loan Scheme remains open, details below.
