More time to apply for recovery grants
South East Queensland primary producers, businesses and non-profit organisations impacted by rainfall and flooding between February and April this year have more time to apply for an Extraordinary Disaster Assistance Recovery Grant, with the deadline extended to 10 March 2023.
Up to $75,000 is available for primary producers and $50,000 for small businesses and not-for-profit organisations impacted by the South East Queensland Rainfall and Flooding Event between 22 February and 5 April 2022.
Designed to assist with the costs of clean-up and reinstatement, the grants are jointly-funded by the Australian and Queensland governments under the Disaster Recovery Funding Arrangements (DRFA).
The application date has been extended in recognition of the severe and ongoing challenges of recent weather events, combined with the lack of contractor availability to carry out works, making it difficult for some people to apply.
This extension is to make sure nobody is left behind and finalising a grant application is not necessarily front-of-mind after a disaster.
