AusNet Chief Executive Officer David Smales said the grant had been effective in providing much needed relief to communities.

“The fund has already provided more than half a million dollars in hardship grants to over 1,000 residents and businesses most impacted by these storm events,” he said.

“We know many of our customers are struggling with cost-of-living pressures, so we’ve extended the timeframe to apply for financial hardship grants until June 30, 2024, to give households and businesses more time to apply.”
