Help for fire-affected owners

PRIMARY producers and small businesses affected by fires on the Fraser Coast are eligible to apply for a State Government low interest loan.

The Queensland Rural Adjustment Authority is offering loans of up to $250,000 under Natural Disaster Relief and Recovery arrangements.

The loan has an interest rate of four per cent and is to help with the carry-on and recovery of an enterprise following a fire.

The money can be spent on repairing and/or replacing damaged fences and sheds, buying fodder for livestock, agistment costs and supplying stock for small businesses for up to one month.
