Flood Recovery

Hawkesbury residents are facing yet another natural disaster, marking the second major flood recovery event within a 6 month period in Hawkesbury.

This is devastating for our community who have already been through so many trials in recent years. Now we must once again pull together as the clean up begins.

For those seeking support,Flood recovery centres will be open at Wisemans Ferry and South Windsor from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm Monday to Friday and from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm on weekends.

You can meet Government and non-Government agencies and find out more about financial assistance for individuals, primary producers and small businesses. Assistance will be available for accommodation, replacing lost documents, mental health support, clean-up services, insurance and legal support.

For residents who have been impacted by the floods, the Australian and NSW Government have announced a one-off, non-means tested Australian Government Disaster Recovery Payment of $1,000 per eligible adult and $400 per eligible child living in Hawkesbury/

The Hills/Hornsby local government areas (LGAs). Funding will also be available for flood clean-up assistance, primary producers that have suffered direct damage, impacted councils, small businesses and not-for-profit organisations that have suffered direct damage.

I encourage those affected by the floods to apply for support via the Service NSW website or by calling the Service NSW Business Concierge on 13 77 88. For further information on the Disaster Recovery Funding Arrangements and other support, visit www.recovery.gov.au.
