The Albanese and Palaszczuk Governments have now activated more disaster funding, as monsoonal rain and flooding continues to impact northern Queensland. The new assistance measures being announced include Personal Hardship Assistance for residents of Urandangi in Boulia Shire Council, and loans for primary producers and small businesses in the Local Government Areas of Burke, Carpentaria, Cloncurry, Doomadgee, Mornington and Mount Isa.
Ten sheep and goat enterprises across rural and regional Queensland will receive just over $1.8 million in funding, creating up to 77 good jobs. Under the Palaszczuk Government’s Rural Agricultural Development (RAD) Grants, funding of up to $200,000 will support projects that will create good jobs relating to the sale and value of products or materials derived from sheep or goats.
