About us

The Queensland Rural and Industry Development Authority (QRIDA) is a specialist provider of government financial and advisory support to rural and regional Queensland.

Formerly known as QRAA, we have been helping primary producers and industry recover from natural disaster, improve sustainability and profitability, make a start in business and overcome difficult conditions for more than 20 years.

As the Queensland Government’s experts in rural finance, we also administer the State Government’s Farm Business Debt Mediation program, conduct a biennial Rural Debt Survey, undertake research and provide advice to the Minister for Agriculture and Fisheries and Minister for Rural Economic Development.

QRIDA is also empowered under the Rural and Regional Adjustment Act 1994 to deliver additional programs and services to local, state and territory governments throughout Australia and for the Australian Government.
