The Disaster Recovery Payment has been extended to eligible residents in Raglan, following last week’s fires.

Dadswell Bridge and Pomonal locals also have access to a one-off payment of $1000 for eligible adults and $400 for children.

The federal grant is available to people who have been significantly affected by the bushfires, including a severely damaged or destroyed home or a serious injury.
