The assistance announced today is jointly funded by the Australian and NSW Governments and has been activated after NSW Premier Barry O’Farrell wrote to the Prime Minister requesting the activation of grants of up to $15,000.
These one-off $15,000 Category C Grants provided under NDRRA will consist of Tier 2 grants of up to $15,000 for both small business and primary producers, including those in agricultural and pastoral industries, requiring proof of damage and expenditure.
For further information about clean up and recovery grants for farmers and small businesses, call the NSW Rural Assistance Authority on 1800 678 593 or visit www.raa.nsw.gov.au
