Rural landholder recovery - $3 million

The clean-up and recovery effort in impacted communities from recent flooding events is beyond the capacity of residents. The Rural Landholder Grant aims to alleviate the personal and financial distress and assist in the recovery of rural landholders that have suffered direct damage to their assets as a result of the flooding events. The program provides financial support to assist with the extraordinary clean-up and reinstatement activities on rural residential properties and supports access to clean water, feed and safe fenced properties.
