Extension of time for grant applications following the 2023 monsoon

Queensland’s flood-affected primary producers, small businesses and not-for-profit organisations will now have more time to apply for extraordinary disaster assistance in response to the monsoonal floods that inundated the north-west in early 2023.

Applications will stay open until 29 December, the last Friday of the year, and eligibility for this assistance covers the local government areas of Boulia, Burke, Carpentaria, Cloncurry, Doomadgee, Mornington and Mount Isa.

The assistance is jointly funded by the Australian and Queensland Governments through the Disaster Recovery Funding Arrangements (DRFA) and includes:

  • Financial assistance of up to $75,000 for primary producers, and up to $50,000 for small businesses and not-for-profits under the Extraordinary Disaster Assistance Recovery Grants program
  • Assistance under the $5.75 million Coordinated Livestock Support and Disposal Package

If you need help with your application, please call the Queensland Rural and Industry Development Authority (QRIDA) on 1800 623 946 or visit www.qrida.qld.gov.au.
