Federal money for Queensland flood victims

8:40 am on 12 February 2013

Farmers and business owners hit by ex-tropical cyclone Oswald in Queensland can start applying for federal government grants to rebuild.

Clean-up and recovery grants of up to $A25,000 are now available.

AAP reports the grants are designed to help cover clean-up costs, replace damaged equipment and stock, and ensure business aren't disrupted longer than necessary.

The funding does not compensate for income losses and is not intended to replace insurance.
