CCF NSW Family Flood Relief
What is the CCF NSW Family Flood Relief Fund?
The CCF NSW Family Flood Relief Fund has been launched in response to the the recent flooding that has occurred across NSW. These floods, coupled with continuing rain across already drenched catchments, is devastating many communities. Unprecedented numbers of people in our State’s flood affected areas are experiencing extreme hardship
The CCF NSW Board has established a new fund to support the staff of our Members who are really struggling.
The CCF NSW Family Flood Relief Fund will prioritise those experiencing extreme hardship who have not been able to access other assistance.
Who qualifies for access to the funds?
To qualify for this funding, the applicant needs to complete the form to the right. They need to be an employee of a Contractor Member (but not the owner); be experiencing hardship caused by the current floods; and have their application endorsed by their employer.
The employee must be suffering extreme hardship due to the floods and needs emergency cash because they cannot source funds elsewhere (eg. Centrelink). A loss of income due to inability to work is not sufficient.
What does the funding cover?
The funds can be used to cover any extreme hardship caused by the floods.
We recommend Employers issue a copy of the explanatory flyer, which can be downloaded here.
