$12,000 lump-sum payments for farming families

FARMERS will get $12,000 in cash payments to put food on their tables and pay power bills as part of Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull’s response to the worst drought he said he has ever seen. Drought-stricken farmers will get two lump-sum _payments of up to $6000 in September and March, with highest payments going to families with children. Instead of low-interest loans and cashback subsidies, the federal government is, for the first time, giving out lump-sum cash payments.
