Grants extended for ex-Tropical Cyclone Seth and the Central, Western and Southern Queensland Floods

Primary producers and businesses impacted by Ex-Tropical Cyclone Seth and the Central, Southern and Western Queensland floods will have more time to apply for the Extraordinary Disaster Assistance Recovery Grants program, with the deadline now extended.

Applications for support following Ex-Tropical Cyclone Seth will remain open until 3 February 2023, and for the Central, Southern and Western Queensland Rainfall and Flooding event until 5 December 2022.

Support of up to $50,000 is available for primary producers, small businesses and not-for-profit organisations impacted by Ex-TC Seth.

Up to $50,000 is also available to primary producers hit by the Central, Southern and Western Queensland Rainfall and Flooding event, while up to $25,000 is available to affected small businesses in the Goondiwindi region.

From ongoing wet weather, to the availability of contractors and supplies, there are a number of factors contributing to the recovery constraints we’re seeing on the ground.

By extending these grant submission dates we hope to alleviate these pressures and allow anyone affected to apply for funding support.

For more information on available assistance for primary producers, small businesses and not-for-profit organisations, visit www.qrida.qld.gov.au or freecall 1800 623 946.

The grants are jointly funded by the Commonwealth and Queensland governments under the Disaster Recovery Funding Arrangements (DRFA).
