Grants of up to $50,000 are available for primary producers, small businesses and non-profit organisations affected by the recent floods in the Wide Bay-Burnett.
The Extraordinary Assistance grants can be used for: ✅ hiring or purchasing equipment to clean up ✅ removing debris and damaged goods ✅ repairs to buildings and fencing ✅ salvaging crops, grains and feed ✅ additional labour costs for repairing flood damage ✅ and other costs associated with the recovery process.
Producers and non-profit organisations in the Fraser Coast Regional Council; Gympie Regional Council; North Burnett Regional Council; South Burnett Regional Council and Bundaberg Regional Council may be eligible.
Agriculture is a major industry and employer in the Wide Bay-Burnett region, and these grants will provide a much-needed boost to help primary producers get back on their feet.
