QFF is partnering with industry groups and the State and Federal governments to deploy Industry Recovery Officers on the ground to assist farmers with the recovery. Click here to access the list of IRO contacts. More information is available from your industry organisation or QFF on 3236 2955.
QFF has prepared this “Flood and Cyclone Assistance 2012-2013″ fact sheet to provide updates on progressive assistance measures implemented during 2012-2013. With the flooding impact still being assessed and still occurring in some regions, the full extent and geography of NDRRA declarations is not yet fully determined. Further general information on natural disasters and assistance is available at this section of the QFF website.
Information on NDRRA declarations is available via QRAA here. 20 local government areas or part local government areas have been declared Category C or D under the NDRRA. Category D allows for concessional loans of up to $650,000 (first two years interest free) with a grant component of up to $50,000. Category C funding allows for clean-up and recovery grants of up to $25,000. Check with QRAA for your shire declaration or contact your industry organisation. (Updated March 27, 2013)
