Flood Recovery Infrastructure
Grants Program 2023
PRIMARY HEALTH CARE
Eligible primary health care services located in the Lismore Local Government Area (LGA) whose premises were impacted by the 2022 floods can apply for an infrastructure repair or relocation grant.
Co-funded by the Australian Government and NSW Government through a $5 million flood recovery package, the grants offer financial assistance either as reimbursement for already incurred expenses or for upcoming expenses relating to repairs for flood-damaged buildings and equipment or relocation to alternative premises within the Lismore LGA.
Please note grant applications close Friday 24 March at 5pm.
Up to $150,000 per eligible grant recipient is available to rebuild flood-damaged infrastructure (buildings or fit-outs), repair or replace flood-damaged equipment or relocate to alternative premises within the Lismore LGA.
- Where a grant applicant’s rebuilding, repair, or relocation expenses are less than $150,000, the grant amount will not exceed the cost of rebuilding, repair, or relocation.
- Applicants who have received support under the Disaster Recovery Funding Arrangements (DRFA) and/or other NSW Government grants can still apply for a Flood Recovery Infrastructure Grant, but any financial support already received will be taken into account. For example, if you apply for $80,000 to replace flood-damaged equipment and have already received $20,000 under DRFA or NSW grant support, $60,000 may be available under the Flood Recovery Infrastructure Grants Program.
- Where a grant applicant has been highly impacted and has extensive rebuilding, repair, or relocation costs exceeding $150,000, an application can be submitted for a higher funding amount and will be evaluated by Healthy North Coast on a case-by-case basis.
Important – Grant funding is available only for costs relating to damage to premises or equipment that was uninsured or for which insurance was prohibitively expensive.
