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.
