Grants Extended for Flood Affected Properties

Melissa Smith

Great news for property owners in the Murraylands and the Riverland! If your property was affected by the recent floods, you now have until the end of the year to access the Essential Services Reconnection Grants, funded by both the Albanese and Malinauskas Governments.

These grants, introduced in January, have been a lifeline for property owners in recovering from last year’s devastating flood. They cover the costs of reconnecting essential services like electricity, gas, water, and sewerage for principal residences that are flood-affected and lack flood insurance.

Demolition has begun on a once-perfect river shack at Scott’s Creek.

So far, 157 inspection grants, totalling $77,100, and 133 repair grants, totalling $360,300, have already been distributed to residents in need.

Inspection grants up to $400 can be used for electrical safety inspections, certification for reconnecting electrical services, gas supply inspections, or septic system inspections for repairs.

Repair grants cover the costs of reconnecting essential services and repairing water or sewerage supply. Eligible home owners can claim up to $4,200.

South Australian Minister for Human Services, Nat Cook, highlights the reopening of the grants as a crucial step in helping communities bounce back from the flood event. She encourages residents to explore the assistance available and apply for the grants.

To apply, a Property Inspection Grant must be completed and applications can be submitted online or in person at a Recovery Centre.

Recovery Centres are conveniently located in Berri, Mannum, and Murray Bridge, offering assistance from Monday to Friday during business hours.

This extended opportunity ensures that flood-affected property owners can focus on rebuilding their homes and communities in the Murraylands and Riverland.
