Bushfire Assistance: Further Funding Announced

22 January 2020

Earlier this week, we provided information regarding the $15,000 Disaster recovery grants available through RAA NSW.

The Government has now released information regarding the new Special Disaster Grant, which provides funding of up to $75,000 for primary producer’s affected by NSW bushfires that have occurred since 31 August 2019. To see if you are in an eligible area, click here.

This grant is provided to assist primary producers directly affected by the fires and the costs associated with immediate recovery to rebuild primary production enterprises.

For more information regarding this grant, including guidelines and eligibility, click here.

Please note, applications must be lodged by 31 July 2020.

Primary producers who have had an application approved for the $15,000 Disaster Recovery grant, are still eligible to apply for the Special Disaster Grant. Any amount already claimed will count towards the total amount you are able to claim.

If you’re unsure of your eligibility or require further information, please see our previous e-alerts below, or contact your Boyce accountant.
