Approved Adviser Program under the Carbon Farming Advice Rebate Program

The Carbon Farming Advice Rebate Program (the Program) will provide landholders with rebates up to $10,000 to offset the cost of obtaining relevant advice related to carbon farming projects and how these projects may be eligible to participate in the Queensland Government’s Land Restoration Fund.
