THE state government has announced a funding package to support those affected by natural disaster and in need of relief and recovery support.
The government said that it is committed to assisting small businesses, primary producers, churches, sporting associations and voluntary non-profit organisations whose assets have been destroyed or damaged as a result of a declared natural disaster caused by bushfire, cyclone, earthquake, storm, flood, natural hazard, meteorite strike, storm surge, tornado, landslide or tsunami.
The relief package is designed to assist in meeting the needs of Primary Producers whose assets or primary production business has/have been affected by a disaster for which the WA Natural Disaster Relief and Recovery Arrangements (WANDRRA) have been invoked.
Assistance would not generally be available where adequate insurance could have been obtained. The government noted that the scheme is not intended to provide compensation for losses suffered. Support is to be offered on a needs basis.
The WANDRRA program is managed by the Fire and Emergency Services Authority (FESA), and is administered by the Department of Agriculture and Food WA (DAFWA), Farm Business Development Unit in conjunction with FESA (telephone 9323 9552).
To apply for support, an Application Form should be completed and forwarded to the Farm Business Development Unit of the Department.
