Disaster Recovery Funding Arrangements for Primary Producers

Financial assistance packages are available for primary producers located in declared disaster areas under Disaster Recovery Funding Arrangements (DRFA).

Assistance includes freight subsidies, natural disaster loans and essential working capital loans (DFRA Category B Assistance).

Clean up and recovery grants of up to $25,000 are also available for producers in the worst hit areas (DRFA Category C Assistance).

Find details on these grants through QRIDA or contact QRIDA on 1800 623 946.

Properties outside disaster-declared areas

Primary producers who have suffered significant damage as a result of a natural disaster event, but are not in a disaster-declared area, may apply for an Individual Disaster Stricken Property (IDSP) declaration.

This declaration will provide access to freight subsidies up to $5 000 from DAF, and Queensland Rural and Industry Development Authority (QRIDA) Disaster Assistance loans of up to $250,000 available at a concessional interest rate.
