Support During Crises

During times of crisis, the QCWA is often the reliable and trusted source of support.

Our Public Rural Crisis Fund, established in 1990, provides support for Queensland women and families suffering from natural disasters or other crises.

Every dollar raised by QCWA members  goes directly to those in need. 100% of all direct debit donations to PRCF goes to recipient families. For all other payment types, we only deduct the payment provider's processing fee from your donation. We take no administration fees at all from donations. 

We are currently assisting farmers and their families with household support in every part of Queensland. Support is in the form of providing grocery vouchers or store credit or paying a household bill such as a utility or a medical account.

Applying for Support

The PRCF provides financial support to families/households in two circumstances:

  • Natural Disasters such as flood, fire, cyclone or drought. You can apply for financial support of up to $1000 per family/household.  
  • General financial hardship provides up to $500 per family/household.

Please ensure you use the correct application form, fill in all areas and provide documentation per the instructions on the form.

For both types of applications, only one application will be accepted each calendar year per family/household.

NB: All applications are assessed and may take some time to approve. We thank you for your patience and understanding that not every application can be approved.
