Natural disaster payments

The Australian Government Disaster Recovery Payment (AGDRP) is a lump sum payment to help if someone has been significantly affected by a disaster in a declared Local Government Area (LGA).

Disaster Recovery Allowance (DRA) is a short term payment to help you if a disaster directly affects your income in a declared LGA.

There’s versions of both DRP and DRA for New Zealanders adversely affected by this emergency event.

More Local Government Areas (LGAs) may be declared eligible for these payments in the coming days. For up-to-date information, visit

Please find attached two factsheets for AGRDP and DRA that can be provided to customers and community groups.
