NSW GOVERNMENT BUSHFIRE CLEAN-UP MEETS INITIAL JUNE 30 TARGET AS REBUILD BEGINS

The bushfire clean-up program undertaken by the NSW Government has met the initial 2,800 property clearing target and today announced further support for communities through a rebuild and housing strategy.

The Deputy Premier and Minister responsible for Disaster Recovery John Barilaro visited Cobargo today and met with the Morrison family to view their cleared property and discuss plans to rebuild.

“As the majority of the clean-up is completed and rebuild begins, the NSW Government has committed $26 million in funding to assist some of the hardest hit families to rebuild their homes,” Mr Barilaro said.

“The Disaster Welfare Rebuild Program will rebuild the houses of up to 100 families who own their land but have no means to replace it."
