FIRE RECOVERY PAYMENTS: TIMELY, EFFECTIVE AND NECESSARY SUPPORT FOR COMMUNITIES

The Greens are calling for an immediate state government commitment to provide every household that has been destroyed by fire with a non-means-tested one-off $10,000 Fire Recovery Payment. At an estimated cost of $15-20 million it can readily be funded from the 2019/20 State Government surplus of $702 million.

An urgent and meaningful emergency payment is needed to help everyone who has lost their home.
