red cross bushfire grants

A heads up for bush fire affected residents in the Wingecarribee Shire.

The Red Cross Emergency Services team wants to stay in touch with them to make sure they're ok and to also assist anyone who needs help with applying for any of the grant upgrades.

One of those is the primary residence repair grant for home owners whose homes have been structurally damaged.

Eligibility has been extended to include destruction or damage to critical private water, septic and/or power infrastructure.

There's also the Small Business Support Grant.
