Farm Business Resilience Program

The Farm Business Resilience Program (FBRP) helps farmers and graziers build a sustainable business by planning today for tomorrow's drought and climate risks.

Through the program you can:

  • access learning and development through training and workshops
  • improve your farm management and business performance
  • plan for challenges that could impact your business.

You can also access support through the program to write and implement a Farm Business Resilience Plan. You need a Farm Business Resilience Plan (or equivalent business plan) to apply for drought assistance grants and loans through the Queensland Rural and Industry Development Authority.
