4. REBUILDING COMMUNITIES
The Australian Government is providing $2 billion over two years, to help rebuild communities and livelihoods.

This $2 billion investment is on top of the existing disaster relief payments.

It is an initial investment. If more is required, it will be provided.

A National Bushfire Recovery Agency, led by former AFP Commissioner Andrew Colvin, will co-ordinate the rebuilding effort.

These funds will cover things like restocking farms, rebuilding roads and telecommunications, mental health support, attracting back tourists, small business support, protecting wildlife and restoring local environments.

While the immediate focus is fighting fires and keeping people safe, we need to hit the ground running when fires have passed.

5. SUPPORT FOR VOLUNTEER FIRE FIGHTERS
The Government is funding financial support of up to $6,000 for emergency services volunteers who have lost income as a result of volunteering to fight the fires.

Public servants who are emergency services volunteers are being provided with additional paid leave. We thank the Australian companies which have matched this.
