North Queensland Restocking, Replanting and On-farm Infrastructure Grant
North Queensland Restocking, Replanting and On-farm Infrastructure co-contribution Grants of up to $400,000 are available to assist primary producers impacted by the North and Far North Queensland Monsoon Trough.
No. As of the 1 July 2020, you can now apply for a Restocking, Replanting and On-farm Infrastructure Grant without needing to have acquired a Special Disaster Assistance Recovery Grant.
Yes. Grant funds may be used to pay for agistment costs (including costs associated with having livestock on stock routes) in order to maintain existing or replacement stock in circumstances where:
fencing or other on-farm infrastructure is still to be repaired, or
pasture on your property has been damaged and requires renovation or simply time to regenerate.
Note: Should agistment form part of your regular operations then these normal operating costs are not able to be claimed under the Grant.
The cost of riverbank repair may be an eligible activity under the scheme. However, this will depend on the specific repairs being proposed.
Riverbank repairs normally require approval from the Department of Natural Resources, Mines and Energy and/or the relevant local River Trust Authority prior to works being undertaken.
No. QRIDA will pay 50 percent of invoice amounts for items claimed, exclusive of GST. This is because you will be able to claim the GST component of your purchases when you lodge your Business Activity Statement with the Australian Taxation Office.
Yes. As you lost livestock in the disaster area, you are able to apply to replace them under this scheme. A copy of your agistment or feed lotting agreement and details of the lost livestock numbers must be included in your application.
