What it is

The Disaster Recovery Allowance (DRA) is a short term payment to help you if the South Australian floods in November 2022 directly affects your income.

You can get it for a maximum of 13 weeks. We’ll pay this from the date you started losing income as a direct result of the South Australian Floods, November 2022.

If you’re a New Zealand citizen living in Australia, check if you’re eligible for New Zealand Disaster Recovery Allowance.
