About the Queensland Floods Appeal 2013
Red Cross in partnership with the Queensland Government established the Queensland Floods Appeal 2013 to provide assistance to individuals and families directly affected by the floods, tornados and storm damage.
Independent Distribution Committee
The Queensland Government has announced the appointment of an Independent Distribution Committee, chaired by the Hon. Terry Mackenroth, with representatives from government, local communities and Red Cross. The Independent Distribution Committee’s key responsibility will be to oversee the distribution of public donations made to the Queensland Floods Appeal 2013.
The initial focus is on helping individuals and families who are experiencing hardship from impacts of this natural disaster because their home is uninhabitable.
Distribution of Funds
The Independent Distribution Committee has decided to release funds from the appeal to assist with emergency needs for people whose principal place of residence was lost or is uninhabitable.
Individuals or families if eligible will receive:
• $2,000 per adult (18 years of age and over)
• $1,000 per dependent child (under 18 years of age)
The closing date for applications is Monday 18th March 2013.
