Pushing for emergency power payments

Popular Stories

Nationals Member for Euroa Annabelle Cleeland encourages those impacted by recent storms to apply for new emergency relief payments.

Payments of $640 per adult and $320 per child – up to a maximum of $2240 per family – are available for eligible community members whose homes were damaged by the storms in Victoria.

Those who have experienced or are experiencing a power outage but whose homes have not been damaged by the storm or were not in an evacuation warning area are ineligible.

Ms Cleeland said while the scope of the payments was limited, she was pushing for increased power outage compensation and increased flood recovery payments.

“While these payments will be of great assistance to some, there are still too many people doing it tough due to the regular power outages across our region,” she said.

“Too many people are stuck with outrageous bills, damaged equipment, and loss of significant business due to the outages.

“On top of that, there are several residents, farmers, and businesses all still feeling the impact of floods in our region too.
