Improvements to the Targeting of Government Support to Build Primary Industry Resilience
In a climate where Governments at all levels are seeking to maximise the effectiveness of
Australian businesses, including primary production, there would seem to be some benefit in
exploring available options to ensure those enterprises that exhibit the industry improvement
behaviours sought are not excluded from disaster support. The Recovery Coordinator
supports the intent of measures to ensure disaster relief support only goes to bona-fide
primary producers, but believes there would be benefit in identifying a more elegant means
of determining eligibility than is in place currently. The Local Land Services (LLS) work in this
area should continue.
