As a declared disaster-impacted region, MidCoast residents can receive fast-tracked support.

The SES has rescued people and worked hard to deliver food to people trapped by floods.

Now the rescues are over, the losses are becoming apparent and the long-term nature of recovery is a reality.

Disaster recovery payments are available for residents impacted by flooding from the Australian Government.

Primary producers may be eligible for financial support, including Special Disaster Grants of as much as $75,000.

Rural Landholder Grants and further funding will be available to primary producers and critical industries to assist in the protection of supply chains, boosting recovery and rebuilding efforts.
