Flood Recovery Rental Support Payment available

24 Mar 2022, by NCCH NSW in Community, Latest News & Events

Applications are now open for the flood recovery rental support payment for residents who were impacted by the flood.

The one-off payment is to help pay for short-term accommodation bookings made on or after 22 February 2022 that are 14 nights or more.

The payment is based on the number of people who normally live in your home who need short-term accommodation:

  • 1 person – $6,000
  • 2 people – $7,200
  • 3 people – $9,200
  • 4 people – $12,400
  • 5 people – $15,200
  • 6 people – $18,000

If you have more than 6 people in your household, the payment will increase by $2,800 for each additional person.  ​​​​​

One person from each household can apply.

  • a MyServiceNSW Account – you can create one when you start your application
  • your name, email address and phone number
  • your proof of identity
  • photographic evidence of the direct damage to your property
  • the number of people in your household who need short-term accommodation
