Rural Recovery Support Service - Bushfires

The Rural Recovery Support Service is managed by the NSW Department of Primary Industries (DPI) and funded by Resilience NSW, to provide assistance to rural landholders and primary producers who have been impacted by the recent bushfires. DPI Recovery Workers are a single point of contact, providing information and referrals to support you on your recovery journey.

If you are a rural landholder or primary producer who has been impacted by the bushfires, and not sure where to go for information and assistance, please contact your local Recovery Worker.

DPI is committed to excellence in customer service. If you have any feedback to improve our service, please send us an email or give us a call:
