Rotary Drought Relief Assistance Scheme
The Rural Financial Counselling Service (RFCS) provides assistance to primary producers and small rural businesses within Southern Queensland in financial duress.
The service is funded by the Federal Government Department of Agriculture to provide this support with part of the Southern Queensland area serviced by the Roma and St George offices.
RFCS has worked very closely with clients during the drought conditions that have affected our region over the last five years and has strong networks within the region. They have worked with the Rotary Club of Queensland since 2014 to assist with the distribution of the clubs drought appeal funds to producers in need.
These funds are issued in the form of vouchers which can be spent in local businesses in St George, Surat and surrounds.
The system has provided a mutual benefit for the producers as well as the regions small business that experience the effects of the drought conditions on their business trade as well.
