NSW Government Bushfire Assistance for Wollondilly

NSW Government Bushfire Assistance for Wollondilly

Posted on: 18.12.2019

Support for those affected by bushfires has been announced by Angus Taylor MP. Please see below for further details.

 

Payments of $1000 per adult and $400 per child are now available to those worst-hit by bushfires in the Kyogle, Central Coast and Wollondilly council areas.

 

Minister for Natural Disaster and Emergency Management David Littleproud said the Australian Government Disaster Recovery Payment would help to provide dignity for those who had suffered a catastrophic loss.

 

“This is for people whose home has been severely damaged or destroyed, who’ve been seriously injured or who’ve lost a family member,” Minister Littleproud said.

 

“It will take time for lives to return to normal this assistance will help locals with their recovery.

 

“We stand shoulder to shoulder with communities facing bushfires and will make more assistance available as it is needed.”

 

The Australian Government assistance announced today is over and above the support already being provided for under the jointly funded Commonwealth-State Disaster Recovery Funding Arrangements (DRFA).

 

Claims will be open from Wednesday 18 December 2019. For more information or to make a claim visit the Human Services website or call 180 22 66.
