If you’ve been adversely affected by the storms and floods you may be eligible for the Australian Government Disaster Recovery Payment. This is a lump sum payment to help you following the Victorian storms and floods in June 2021.
It’s not for minor damage or inconvenience. You can choose to get this payment in 2 instalments.
If you lost income as a direct result of the storms and floods, you may also be eligible for Disaster Recovery Allowance.
Disaster Recovery Allowance (DRA) is a short term payment to help you if a declared disaster directly affects your income.
You can get it for a maximum of 13 weeks. The payment will start from the date you started losing income as a direct result of the Victorian storms and floods in June 2021.
You have until 31 May 2022 to claim either of these payments.
