Seek one-on-one advice

PROSERPINE businesses struggling with the finer details of securing a $5000 Category C grant in the wake of Cyclone Debbie need to get in contact with QRAA.

Proserpine chamber of commerce secretary Karen Vloedmans said there wasn't a 'one size fits all' approach for businesses seeking assistance.

"What we can say is we will completely encourage small business owners to make contact with QRAA either on their website or toll-free number,” she said.

"The reason we do encourage them to do so is each individual circumstance in business is exactly that (individual), so for them to be given the correct one-on-one individual advice for their business, they need to make contact.”

Businesses that have been successful with the $5000 grant application reported the process took between 20-30 minutes online.

Grants of up to $20,000 and access to a low-interest rate loan of 1.16% over seven years for up to $250,000 are also available under specific circumstances.

For eligibility enquiries call 1800623946.
