The Annual Report is developed in accordance with legislative reporting obligations and enables the Queensland Parliament, through the Minister for Agricultural Industry Development and Fisheries, to assess our financial and operational performance.

Highlights of our performance outlined in the Annual Report  2021-22 include:

  • As at June 30, QRIDA approved more than 53,400 applications worth over $657 million in government financial assistance for 2021-2022.
  • This is the biggest transactional year for QRIDA in its 28-year history, demonstrating our passion and capacity to assist rural industry and businesses across the state.
  • We played an important role in delivering COVID-19 financial support as part of the Queensland Government’s Economic Recovery Strategy. We delivered nine programs providing relief to businesses across the state from the devastating impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic including the COVID-19 Business Support Grant program, delivering over $321 million to more than 31,600 impacted businesses across the state.
  • We launched five new Queensland Government Drought Assistance Programs on behalf of the Department of Agriculture and Fisheries.
  • We administered over $69 million in disaster recovery grants and $4 million in disaster recovery loans to help get businesses and communities back on their feet as soon as possible.
  • We delivered over $95 million in First Start and Sustainability Loans to producers across Queensland through the Primary Industry Productivity Enhancement Scheme.
  • We continued supporting producers with our Farm Business Debt Mediation and Farm Debt Restructure Office programs. Our Farm Business Analysis Assistance, which is administered by our Farm Debt Restructure Office, was able to connect clients with free, independent advice from a consultant to help them move forward with confidence in their rural enterprise.
