This assistance is not intended to cover non-essential debris beyond the immediate vicinity of the residential property. In some cases, assistance may be available for the demolition of uninsured homes that have been destroyed or significantly damaged.

If your uninsured home was impacted by Tropical Cyclone Seroja, is in an activated Local Government Area, and you would like clean-up assistance please register your interest.

You may begin anywhere in this application form. Please ensure you save as you go.
