Plea for farmers to get flood aidMonday October 1, 2012 - 09:25 EST
The Victorian Farmers Federation (VFF) has called on the federal Attorney-General's office to approve grants for farmers affected by the June floods.
Buchan farmers are waiting on state and federal grants of up to $25,000 to be approved by the Federal Government.
The Attorney-General's office confirmed it was reviewing the grants but would not say when a decision would be made.
Doug Stephenson, from the Buchan branch of the VFF, says farmers need the grants because they cannot afford to pay back loans.
"I would've thought that it shouldn't have taken nearly four months to approve a small input to assist farmers," he said.
