Following the devastating bushfires, a range of financial assistance has been made available to help with clean up and recovery.
The Australian Red Cross is offering emergency grants of $10,000 to people who have lost their home in the bushfires.
Grants are available to people whose primary place of residence has been destroyed or rendered uninhabitable as the result of bushfires from 1 July 2019 to 28 February 2020. One grant is available per household.
Applications can be made online on the Australian Red Cross Website. Grants will be open until 30 April 2020.
