Recovery Grant Application

Farmers affected by flooding caused by ex-Cyclone Debbie and Cyclone Cook in April 2017 are able to apply for an MPI grant to assist with the costs of uninsurable damage sustained during these events.

The grant is available to cover:

  • Re-establishment of uninsurable pasture or crops (on cultivatable land only), and/or
  • Clean-up of silt and debris (where uninsurable), where the work needed to be done as a matter of urgency.
