As the government has not yet declared it under the Natural Disaster Relief and Recovery Arrangements (NDRRA).

It is the following that will be applicable to most properties-

Where an individual producer has been disaster impacted however the wider local government area did not suffer significant damage such as to warrant an area activation, the producer can apply to DEEDI for an Individual Disaster Stricken Property (IDSP) declaration.

On assessment by DEEDI of the damage to the property an IDSP will enable the producer to apply for loans through QRAA and/or freight subsidies.

 Freight subsidies

Freight subsidies of up to $5000 per disaster event are available for eligible primary producers located within a disaster-declared area under joint Commonwealth/State Natural Disaster Relief and Recovery Arrangements (NDRRA), or where a primary producer has a current IDSP declaration.

 QRAA

 Loans are available to some producers – please refer to Queensland Rural Adjustment Authority.  - http://www.qraa.qld.gov.au/

Bushfire assistance
Primary producers severely affected by the current outbreak of bushfires in regional Queensland may be eligible for concessional loans of up to $250,000.  For more information visit the Department of Agriculture Fisheries and Forestry website (and scroll down to the IDSP section) or call 13 25 23.
