Disaster assistance is now available for Isaac Regional Council following the severe flooding event between November and December last year.
The assistance is being provided through the jointly funded Commonwealth-State Disaster Recovery Funding Arrangements (DRFA).
Federal Member for Capricornia Michelle Landry said the extension of disaster funding will help the flood-affected local council to cover the cost of their clean-up, repair and rebuild efforts.
“More than two months on and the effects of this wide-reaching weather event are continuing to be realised,” Ms Landry said.
“Isaac Regional Council can rest assured the costs associated with eligible counter disaster operations and the restoration of essential public assets will be covered.
“The DRFA funding will see vital repairs to the local road network take place over the coming months.”
