Recently. the Morrison Government announced further much needed assistance for flood-affected North Queensland farmers.
“Locally operated family holdings will have access to up to $400,000 through two grant programs – one for restocking and replanting, and the other to replace on-farm infrastructure lost and damaged during the floods.” the Prime Minister said.
Prime Minister Scott Morrison said the restocking/replanting and on-farm infrastructure grants mean primary producers will have access to cash to start rebuilding their farm businesses when the time is right. Farmers will contribute 50 per cent of the total cost, and the Government, through the grants, will provide the remainder up to $400,000.
