The Commonwealth Government is offering financial assistance to 15 local government areas (LGAs) in south-east Queensland as well as numerous communities in northern NSW.

The Disaster Recovery Payment is a one-off, non-means tested payment of $1000 per eligible adult and $400 per eligible child.

It is available to eligible people in those affected LGAs who have suffered a significant loss, including a severely damaged or destroyed home or serious injury.

Affected Queensland residents can make a claim for the Disaster Recovery Payment immediately.

Claims can be made online via MyGov, or by calling the Australian Government Emergency Information Line on 180 22 66.
