Bushfire recovery funding allocations


Thank you to the community organisations, rural networks, evacuation centres, and Chambers of Commerce for engaging with us and providing project ideas to support our community in recovering from the devastating 2019 bushfires.  We have now finalised our consultation with affected communities and local business, and have agreed which priority projects will be funded under the State and Federal Government funding allocation to Port Macquarie-Hastings Council.  

Allocation of Bushfire Disaster Recovery Funding

The Commonwealth and State Governments have provided an allocation of funding under the following programs:

The funding received is an important investment in the recovery of our community and economy after the devastating bushfires in 2019. It will help support our residents and businesses, and improve community assets for future bushfire prepared-ness in a very difficult climate noting the situation with COVID-19.

We have tried to provide an equal spread of funding across the LGA with a mix of Council managed projects and community-led projects.

Port Macquaire-Hastings Council acknowledges and appreciates the funding from the NSW and Commonwealth Government.
