A low interest loan up to $100,000 can assist you with essential working capital for expenses such as:
- paying salaries or wages
- paying creditors
- paying rent or rates
- buying goods, including for example, fuel essential to carry on the primary production enterprise
- buying fodder or water for livestock or produce or transporting livestock or product
To be eligible for assistance, you must have suffered a significant loss of income as a result of an eligible disaster and your enterprise must be located in an activated local government area.
Please note that primary producers can only receive assistance under the Natural Disaster Assistance Scheme OR the Natural Disaster Assistance (Essential Working Capital) Scheme for an eligible disaster - not both.
