Accessing disaster funding gets a little easier

18 December 2019

To help people find immediate support in the event of a disaster, GrantGuru, the team behind Council’s Gunnedah Shire Funding Finder portal, has introduced a new feature.

The feature, called “Quick List Bushfire, Drought, and Disaster Funding”, recognises the devastating impact of fires and drought, and acknowledges help can be needed quickly for both those directly impacted and communities in need of rebuilding.

“This is a great new feature that will assist our community to access support in the event of a fire or drought, like the one we are experiencing now,” Gunnedah Shire Council Director Planning and Environment Andrew Johns said.

“It means that rather than searching the portal, all drought fire, and disaster-related funding and support is collated and located centrally on the Shire’s Funding Finder Home Page.

“This will make it just a little easier for people to get the support they need at what is an extremely stressful time.”
