Disaster Recovery Grants

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 Natural Disaster Relief and Recovery Arrangements (NDRRA).

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.
