Federal Member for Capricornia Michelle Landry has welcomed the announcement of Category C disaster assistance for small business in Rockhampton, Isaac and Mackay local government areas.
“Small businesses and non-profit organisations affected by severe weather and flooding from Tropical Cyclone Debbie can now apply for $25,000 grants,” Ms Landry said.
“The grants can be used for such things as undertaking clean-up operations, repairing damage to premises, and replacing stock under Category C of the jointly-funded Natural Disaster Relief and Recovery Arrangements.,” Ms Landry said.
“This is a welcome announcement and one that I am sure will benefit a number of severely impacted businesses.
“When we toured the areas impacted, I witnessed first-hand the severity of the damage and have been in regular discussions with Minister for Justice Michael Keenan to ensure remote areas didn’t miss out.
The grants will be administered by QRAA and further detail is available by calling 1800 623 946 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
