Managing Relocation Assistance to Take Up a Job – AgMove – under Harvest Trail Services

Relocation Assistance to Take Up a Job (RATTUAJ) provides financial assistance to participants who are eligible for Harvest Trail Services (HTS) to relocate to take up Harvest Work in a Harvest Area. It is a tool for HTS Providers to attract Harvest Workers from outside of their Harvest Area to help Harvest Employers meet their seasonal labour needs.

In the 2020–21 Budget, the Government announced the More Relocation Support for Agricultural Workers measure. This measure temporarily modifies RATTUAJ by providing a Payment for short-term Agricultural Work placements commencing between 1 November 2020 and 30 June 2022.

This Guideline sets out obligations when managing RATTUAJ for eligible Harvest Workers who relocate to take up short-term Agricultural Work and only applies to HTS Providers who deliver Relocation Assistance to Take Up a Job (RATTUAJ).

RATTUAJ for short-term Agricultural Work is also referred to as ‘AgMove’. From 5 May 2021, Harvest Trail Services and the Harvest Trail Information Service providers are exclusively responsible for delivering AgMove.

jobactive, Transition to Work, ParentsNext, NEST Enhanced Services, Disability Employment Services and Community Development Program providers will continue to deliver RATTUAJ for ongoing work only.
