Help on way for those in need after Debbie
THE North Burnett will receive more assistance to deal with the aftermath of ex-Tropical Cyclone Debbie.
Justice Minister Michael Keenan, along with the Queensland Emergency Services Minister Mark Ryan announced additional disaster assistance for those hit hard by the wild weather.
Assistance is available in 27 local government areas, including the North Burnett.
The assistance is being provided through the jointly funded Commonwealth state natural disaster relief and recovery arrangements.
Mr Keenan said even though the threat of Cyclone Debbie had passed, ongoing assessments by the Queensland Government showed additional support was needed.
“Through the funding, we can ensure that affected communities are able to recover from natural disasters as quickly as possible, including through the restoration of damaged infrastructure,” Mr Keenan said.
Mr Ryan said the additional assistance meant local government areas, including the North Burnett, would receive the support they needed to repair the damage.
