The NSW and Australian Governments are working together to provide financial support to businesses impacted by the recent storms and floods.
Eligible primary producers can apply now for a Special Disaster Grant of up to $75,000 on the Rural Assistance Authority website.
Small businesses and not-for-profit organisations may be eligible for a grant of up to $50,000.

If you’re a retail or other commercial premises tenant, property agent or owner and unsure who is responsible for repairs caused by storm damage, check the terms of your lease agreement to understand repair obligations.
If the property owner and tenant are in dispute and cannot resolve their differences, contact the NSW Small Business Commissioner to discuss options for mediation.
If you and your business have been impacted by these rain and flood events, our thoughts are with you and our team are here to assist with any related grant or loan applications.
