The National Recovery and Resilience Ageny works hand-in-hand with communities, all levels of government, charities and agricultural organisations to support farmers and rural and regional Australians living through the immediate and longer-term effects of drought, flood, bushfires and other disasters.
Its aim is to ensure people and communities are given the support they need to be better prepared now and into the future.
The Agency is conducting community outreach events throughout affected districts in regional Australia to bring together community members and share with them important information about available government support and how to access it.
Under this Australian Government initiative, agencies (in partnership with state government agencies and non-government organisations) will travel to affected communities, to assist farming households.
Events are held in town halls or similar style venues, where community members can come and go over a period of time and chat to stakeholders and other community members.
Sessions will be held at Wentworth, Pooncarie and Mungo in April, see attached flyers.
