The Australian Government has announced that eligible people living in these Local Government Areas (LGAs) will get an Australian Government Disaster Recovery Payment - Special Supplement:
- Clarence Valley
- Richmond Valley
To be eligible, you must have received or you’ll get Australian Government Disaster Recovery Payment (AGDRP) or New Zealand Disaster Recovery Payment (NZ DRP) for the NSW Floods which started in February 2022 for one of these LGAs.
You don’t need to submit a claim for the Special Supplement. After you get your AGDRP or NZ DRP, we’ll pay the Special Supplement into your nominated bank account.
Eligible adults will get an additional $2,000 and each dependent child under 16 will get an additional $800.
We’ll pay the Special Supplement in 2 parts.
If you haven’t claimed AGDRP or NZ DRP yet, check if you’re eligible by reading NSW Floods, February 2022.

We have staff in Mobile Service Centres and recovery centres available to help you claim disaster payments. Check where to find us.
