When a disaster occurs, governments activate their recovery arrangements.
This involves providing a range of support services to assist affected individuals, businesses and communities including financial assistance, practical support and information. Details of specific services available will be promoted widely through outlets such as recovery centres, through radio, newspapers, government websites or help lines, local health services and businesses, and in disaster recovery newsletters.
To assist businesses in locating relevant information at this time, ACCI has compiled below links to information on business-specific queries our members are receiving.
This portal will be updated as new support and recovery announcements are made.
The Small Business Bushfire Financial Support Line (1800 413 828) is fully operational. Callers are greeted with an introductory message and then are put through to a special queue for bushfire related support.
