Camden, Wollondilly, and Wingecarribee local government areas will benefit from a $200 million recovery funding package to support communities affected by the February and March 2021 storms and floods.
In addition, a $200 million Infrastructure Betterment Fund will be established to support the reconstruction and improved disaster resilience of public assets damaged during the recent storms and floods as well as the 2019-20 bushfires.
Federal Member for Hume Angus Taylor said the $200 million in support will be delivered through eight key initiatives and will help with the next stage of recovery for NSW storm and flood-impacted regions.
"This third phase of recovery support is in recognition and appreciation of the work involved to repair and rebuild major public assets and infrastructure and will provide support for our local economy".
The storms and floods impacted over 70 Local Government Areas across NSW. Recovery funding is targeted to help industry and job retention, rebuild community infrastructure, deliver a range of projects to safeguard mental health and community well-being and ensure that impacted regions have the resources they need to bounce back.
People requiring ongoing flood assistance, support and referral are urged to contact Service NSW on 13 77 88 or online via service.nsw.gov.au/floods.
Information on disaster assistance is available on the Australian Government's Disaster Assist website at disasterassist.gov.au.
