We have lump sum payments and ongoing, short-term allowances to help people directly affected by a declared natural disaster.
The Australian Government Disaster Recovery Payment is a lump sum payment of:
- $1,000 for eligible adults
- $400 for each eligible child under the age of 16.
People can also claim Disaster Recovery Allowance if they’ve lost income as a direct result of the floods.
Let community members know they can read about payment eligibility and how to claim during natural disaster events
