The Federal Government has announced the formation of the National Bushfire Recovery Agency (NBRA).
The formation comes alongside an initial $2 billion commitment to ensure families, farmers and business owners hit by the unprecedented bushfires receive the support needed to recover.
Assistance will include restocking and replenishing, rebuilding roads and telecommunications infrastructure, mental health support, attracting tourists back to the regions and helping restore the local environment and impacted wildlife.
The NBRA has been launched with an official website which includes ongoing information on the current bushfire situation, an introduction to National Bushfire Recovery Coordinator, Andrew Colvin APM OAM and details for accessing disaster payments for those in need of assistance.
