By completing their Farm Business Resilience Plan, Jamie knows that installing three large feed storage sheds will assist with protecting their farm from drought.
After seeking quotes for these sheds, they find it will cost $230,000 to build. Jamie decides to apply for a Drought Preparedness Grant to cover up to 25% of the cost to a maximum of $50,000.
Applying through QRIDA, they submit their quotes and Farm Business Resilience Plan for review. Meeting all the eligibility criteria, Jamie is approved for the Drought Preparedness Grant and receives $50,000 as it does not exceed 25% of the cost of the capital infrastructure they wish to build. This money will now go towards building the feed storage sheds.
