Willoughby community eligible for disaster recovery funding

Published on 16 September 2022


The NSW Government has advised Council that the Willoughby LGA is now eligible for disaster recovery funding relating to severe weather and flooding during February 2022.

This means that Willoughby residents, businesses and non profit groups may be eligible for a range of loans and grants to help them recover from February’s extreme weather events.

It should be noted that funding for damage to private residencies is typically only available to low income households who have been unable to secure private insurance cover.

For more information on these options, please go to :  https://disasterassistance.service.nsw.gov.au/ and fill in the Disaster Assistance Finder.

Alternatively, contact Service NSW tel: 13 77 88.
