Apply for the Volunteer Firefighters’ Financial Support Program

The South Australian Government is administering the Commonwealth Government's Volunteer Firefighters' Financial Support Program, which is designed to help volunteer firefighters and SES volunteers who have put time into volunteering in the current fire season, and have incurred a financial cost.

The program will provide payments to eligible volunteer firefighters and SES volunteers who are self-employed or employed by small and medium business, and have lost income.

Payments of up to $300 per day, with a total cap of $6000, will be available in the 2019-20 financial year. The payments are tax-free and not means-tested.
