Commonwealth Government’s EWIR Scheme
An update on the Commonwealth Government’s Emergency Water Infrastructure Rebate (EWIR) Scheme:
There has been an unprecedented demand for the EWIR program which has seen available funding exhausted.
This week the Commonwealth Government has advised the NSW Government that there is no available funding and the scheme is now closed to new applicants.
The NSW Government has urgently requested the Commonwealth reconsider additional funding for this program, however as stated in the guidelines for the program, the availability of rebates is subject to funds being available and no rebates can be offered beyond the allocated funding.
As a result the RAA is obligated to close the program. As funding negotiations continue, we will continue to update the website as more information is available.
