NSW DPI works with Local Land Services (LLS) and other agencies/organisations to support the NSW State Emergency Service (SES) by coordinating animal welfare relief services for livestock, wildlife and companion animals and assisting affected primary producers.
Information on local recovery activities can be sought from your Local Land Services on 1300 795 299. After an emergency, primary producers and the community can implement a range of actions and access services and assistance to aid recovery.
Local government areas in NSW declared Natural Disasters are eligible for assistance under Natural Disaster Relief and Recovery Arrangements (NDRRA). Additional assistance measures for primary producers, which include recovery grants, are available for eligible areas.
Primary producers should report flood-related damage including stock and fodder losses, damage to crops, pastures, fencing and other farm infrastructure to their Local Land Services office. This will ensure we understand the full extent of the damage and can provide ongoing support where it is needed most.
