Bushfire assistance for Central Queensland Communities
3 December, 2018
Disaster assistance has been extended to help cover the costs of fighting bushfires in the communities of Bundaberg, Central Highlands and Isaac as well as extending recovery assistance to areas in Bundaberg, Gladstone and Rockhampton.
In addition, assistance is now available to help impacted primary producers in Gladstone, Mackay and Rockhampton recover from the unprecedented ongoing bushfire situation.
Assistance is being provided through the jointly funded Commonwealth-State Disaster Recovery Funding Arrangements (DRFA) and is in addition to the assistance already available for communities in Central Queensland.
Information on disaster assistance can be found on the Australian Government’s Disaster Assist website at www.disasterassist.gov.au and the Queensland Government’s Disaster Management website at www.disaster.qld.gov.au.
