Disaster Recovery Payment

Australian Government Disaster Recovery Payment (AGDRP) is a one-off, non-means tested payment of $1,000 per eligible adult and $400 per child who have been adversely affected by a major disaster either in Australia or overseas.

The AGDRP may be activated when the impact of a disaster on individuals and families requires an additional Australian Government response to support short-term recovery needs.

The Prime Minister or Cabinet may also decide to provide a similar payment to New Zealand Special Category visa holders who have been affected by declared major disasters.
