Funding for farm recovery and resilience

La Nina has again made itself felt this season, whipping up Tropical Cyclone Seth and causing significant flooding and damage in the Wide Bay - Burnett region. This is on top of the widespread flooding across central, southern and western Queensland in November. Meanwhile, farmers in the northwest continue to operate under drought declarations. As floodwaters recede, Queensland farmers have begun the difficult recovery process with which many are all too familiar. The Queensland and Australian governments have responded quickly by activating Category C assistance to help farmers get back on their feet through the jointly funded Disaster Recovery Funding Arrangements (DRFA).
