As at 7 May 2021, payments were made directly to more than 1,000 eligible applicants. A further 1,800 applications received this week are currently being assessed for eligibility. We are processing them as fast as we can.
Given this significant amount of applications and the funds we had available from our NSW Floods Appeal, we have closed the grant to ensure that we have enough funds to provide assistance to applicants who meet the eligibility criteria.
We will assess all grant applications received over the past few days and make payments to those who meet the eligibility criteria.
If any funds from the appeal remain, we will provide further opportunity for people to apply.
If you have any questions about the grants, please call our grants team on 1800 733 276 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will do our best to help you.
