Industry recovery and resilience - $2.5 million

Industry Recovery and Resilience Officers aim to help producers recover from the initial impacts of the Central, Southern and Western Queensland Rainfall and Flooding, Ex-Tropical Cyclone Seth and the South East Queensland Rainfall and Flooding events and build resilience to the impact of future cumulative flood events.

The program will provide support for primary producers for short, medium and longer-term recovery needs, including to develop industry-specific, risk-based, on farm flood management plans.

Industry Recovery and Resilience Officers will operate in the 22 LGAs activated for primary producer assistance following the Central, Southern and Western Queensland Rainfall and Flooding, Ex-Tropical Cyclone Seth and South East Queensland Rainfall and Flooding events.
