If natural disasters are widespread and extremely severe, the NSW and Australian Governments may jointly announce the provision of grants. Such grants rely on the declaration of a natural disaster.
Natural disaster recovery grants provide immediate relief to eligible primary producers, small businesses and non-profit organisations, for clean-up and restoration costs in the aftermath of extreme natural disasters.
RAA administers these grants under the joint Commonwealth and NSW government funded Disaster Recovery Funding Arrangements (DRFA) 2018.
To report damage following a severe weather event primary producers are encouraged to contact their closest Local Land Services (LLS) office or telephone on 1300 795 299.
There are no grants currently out for application aside from Special Disaster Assistance - closing 31 December 2020
