    Disaster Recovery Allowance

    Disaster Recovery Allowance (DRA) is a short term payment to help you if a declared disaster directly affects your income.

    You can get it for a maximum of 13 weeks. We’ll pay this from the date you lose income as a direct result of the New South Wales floods in March 2021.

    DRA is a taxable payment. You can ask us to withhold voluntary tax deductions from your payments.

    If you get DRA you might be able to get Beneficiary Tax Offset. This may reduce the amount of tax you pay. You’ll need to contact the Australian Taxation Office to find out more.

    To get it, you must also meet all of the following. You:

    1. were 16 or older at the time of the disaster
    2. are an Australian resident or hold an eligible visa
    3. work or live in an affected Local Government Area (LGA)

    We’ll look at all of the following:

    1. your income
    2. your personal circumstances
    3. if you’re dependent on anyone, such as an adult who has legal responsibility for your care and provides financial assistance.

    We use Australian Bureau of Statistics figures to work out average weekly income. This equates to $1713.90 per week from 1 January 2021.

    You can’t get DRA if you get any of the following payments during your claim period:

    1. an income support payment or pension
    2. Parental Leave Pay
    3. Dad and Partner Pay
    4. ABSTUDY living allowance
    5. Farm Household Allowance
    6. a Service Pension from the Department of Veterans' Affairs.

    If you’re a member of a couple, you can both claim this payment. You and your partner will need to make separate claims.

    The maximum payment rate is the equivalent of JobSeeker Payment or Youth Allowance, based on your circumstances. Your income before and after the floods will affect how much you get.

    If you’re independent, we’ll work out your maximum rate of payment based on both your:

    accommodation

    personal circumstances.

    How to claim

    The fastest way to claim is over the phone. Call us on 180 22 66 where we can take your claim, or print and complete the New South Wales Floods March, 2021 – Disaster Recovery Allowance claim form and fax it to 1300 727 760.

    Regional Events Acceleration Fund

    Regional NSW is blessed with a host of world-class events attracting tens of thousands of metropolitan, interstate and international visitors to regional communities each year.

    Visitors not only spend money at the events themselves, but at local cafes and restaurants, service stations, bars, tourist attractions and accommodation; helping to boost our regional economies and create jobs in regional areas.

    The cancellation of major events due to COVID-19 has impacted local event venues, workers and communities who rely on the influx of visitors and tourist dollars.

    To support the social and economic recovery of our regions, the NSW Government’s $20 million Regional Events Acceleration Fund helps organisations to:

    1. attract new major international and domestic events to regional areas
    2. make existing regional events even bigger and better.

    Funding will help meet the costs of attracting or retaining major events, such as premier sporting fixtures or competitions, and helps fund the operational and infrastructure improvements existing events need to increase visitation and length of stay.

    The types of events eligible for funding include:

    1. major sporting and lifestyle events
    2. major food and beverage events
    3. major music, art and culture festivals.

    The funding is for events hosted in regional NSW between March 2021 and June 2022.

    The Regional Events Acceleration Fund offers two streams – Major Event Operations and Infrastructure grants and Major Event Attraction and Enhancement grants.

    Stream One: Major Event Operations and Infrastructure

    Grants between $50,000 and $200,000 are available to support temporary event infrastructure and operational improvements at existing regional events to help increase visitation.

    Examples of the types of event infrastructure and operational improvements that are eligible for funding include:

    1. securing a major artist/performance to increase an event’s appeal
    2. additional temporary seating areas to increase capacity
    3. additional staging for a music festival
    4. establishing a pop-up camping and caravan site to support more overnight stays.

    Stream Two: Major Event Attraction and Enhancement

    Grants for a minimum of $100,000 for the attraction, delivery and retention of major international and domestic events to regional areas across regional NSW, with a focus on major sporting events providing national or international exposure.

    Expressions of Interest open — 2021 Volunteer Grants

    The Australian Government is inviting organisations via a restricted non-competitive process to apply for a Volunteer Grant under the Families and Communities Program – Volunteer Grants Activity in 2021.

    Volunteer Grants form part of the government’s work to support volunteers, as well as to encourage and increase participation in volunteering. The grants provide small amounts of money that organisations and community groups can use to help their volunteers.

    The 2021 Volunteer Grants round begins with a call for Expressions of Interest, with your local Member of Parliament (MP) using a community committee to develop a list of organisations to nominate. Following the Expression of Interest process, the MPs will nominate organisations from their lists. The nomination period closes at 2:00 PM AEST 29 April 2021.

    Only organisations nominated by their MP will receive an invitation to apply for the 2021 Volunteer Grants.

    Information about this grant opportunity can be found on the Community Grants Hub website and GrantConnect.
