NSW Premier Dominic Perrottet has arrived in Lismore this morning to announce money for uninsured owners and renters who haven’t claimed the federal disaster relief grant.
Returning from paternity leave, Mr Perrottet announced $20,000 for each flood affected household in local government areas including the Hawkesbury, Ballina, Byron, Clarence Valley, Kyogle, Lismore, Richmind Valley and Tweed.
The grants are designed for people who aren’t insured, to assist with clean up and repairs.
The Premier and Deputy Premier have said they will be making further announcements in Lismore this afternoon, after inspecting flood damage.
Meanwhile rain has returned to Lismore and the surrounding catchment, with heavier falls predicted in coming days.
