Flood relief still available
DEPUTY Premier Paul Lucas has urged all Queenslanders whose homes were destroyed or sustained structural damage by floodwater to apply for funding from the Premier’s Disaster Relief Fund.
Mr Lucas said thousands of Queenslanders had sustained damage to their homes and the fund had so far paid out more than $66 million.
But many thousands of flood victims were yet to apply to the fund, which has raised more than $255 million.
“Round two of the fund offers up to $100,000 to those people whose homes were completely destroyed,” he said.
The application forms are available for download from www.qld.gov.au/floods, and local outlets including the Department of Communities and QGAP offices.
Applications will remain open until June 30.
