If you’ve been affected by the Queensland floods, assistance is being offered by the Queensland Government for flood victims. Click the hyperlink to determine the conditions for qualification. $25,000 grants and up to $250,000 in special loans are being made available for those in need.
Bree Robbins of Paddington Pups (who was flooded in Brisbane) mentioned to me that people who work for flood affected businesses who have been closed can get wage assistance from Centre Link via the Disaster Income Recovery Subsidy.
The Disaster Income Recovery Subsidy has been activated to assist employees, small business persons, and farmers who have had a loss of income as a direct result of the flooding and severe weather that began from 29 November 2010 and continued in January 2011 in the states of Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria, South Australia and Western Australia.
