Environmental Recovery from Tropical Cyclone Debbie

QMDC is helping to deliver funding to landholders whose properties were impacted by heavy rain or flooding generated by Tropical Cyclone Debbie between 28 March and 6 April 2017. 

Funding is available for:
  • Soil erosion on river or creek banks
  • Damage to river or creek banks such as trees washed out
  • Damage to contour banks

  • Fencing to protect sensitive native vegetation on your creek and river banks
(To apply, continue scrolling to the link below the map).
What projects are eligible?

Potential activities could include projects that:

  • prevent further damage or erosion of land and river/creek areas (for example, increase groundcover and revegetate degraded areas including hillslopes and riverine areas)
  • improve water quality, waterway and ecosystem health and/or reduce the impact on community infrastructure
  • enhance landscape, waterway and ecosystem resilience to the impacts of future events
  • enable landholders, local industry, community, and/or ecosystems to function, including during future extreme weather impacts
  • weed control to promote recovery of waterways impacted by flood and aquatic weeds
  • gully restoration and soil conservation repairs
