Steve help available

Government support is just a phone call away for victims of Cyclone Steve.

The Small Business Development Corpor-ation has set up a special flood hotline to guide small businesses affected by flooding in WA’s north west.

SBDC managing director George Etrelezis said, as well as offering support and guidance, SBDC staff could also help flood victims access other relief services.

“This includes the recently announced payments of $1,000 per adult and $200 per child, coordinated by the Department of Family and Children’s Services,” Mr Etrelezis said.

“The Department of Transport is also administering funds to help owner-operator transport drivers who were stranded by the floodwaters.

“Drivers stranded for more than seven days are eligible for direct payments of $100 per day up to a maximum of $2,000.”

The SBDC’s Flood Hotline number is 1800 199 125.

Staff are on hand to take calls from 8:00am to 8:00pm.
