Assistance is available to residents of the Shire of Mundaring and City of Swan who suffered personal hardship due to the loss or damage to their primary residence, property, furniture or personal effects as a result of the Wooroloo and Hills Bushfire.
The board of the LMDRF has approved an additional payment of $25,000 for owner-occupier applicants with total loss of property, bringing the total amount eligible to $50,000. The second $25,000 payment is being deposited into approved applicant’s bank accounts. Occupiers (those renting) properties where the house and its contents have been destroyed, are eligible to receive $25,000.
The LMDRF board encourages grant applications from all owners and occupiers who have experienced total loss of property as a result of the bushfires.
The Local Recovery Committees and/or any sub-committees formed by the Shire of Mundaring or the City of Swan for the purpose of financial assistance dealings, will receive and assess claims for their residents and make recommendations to the Board.
The final decision regarding the extent of assistance for each claim rests with the Board of the Lord Mayor’s Distress Relief Fund.
