Malcolm Turnbull consoles grief-stricken woman as he announces emergency drought relief

Not before time!


Key points:

*  Latest cash relief offers up to $12,000 per household in additional payments

*  Part of the $190 million FHA scheme will go to Rural Financial Counsellors and mental health support

*   This will bring the Government's drought spend up to $576 million

Mr Turnbull has today promised to do more to help those under intense financial strain due to relentless drought conditions, signing off on emergency "special" payments for eligible farmers, to be made through the Farm Household Allowance (FHA) scheme.

Currently, those on the FHA scheme can access a payment equivalent to the unemployment benefit, worth about $16,000 a year.

Today's announcement will provide households up to $12,000 in additional lump-sum payments for couples. Single households will get $7,200.

The Farm Household Allowance comes under Human Services, i.e. Centrelink.

In a Turnbull "captain's call" he just gave $444,000,000 to a 6 person company.
Makes the $190,000,000 look kinda slim.

Yes! The GBR Foundation!

Quote :
In April the Government announced it would give the Great Barrier Reef Foundation $444 million to fund projects to improve the health of the reef.

The foundation had only six staff when it was told it was getting the huge grant, which managing director Anna Marsden told Radio National was an "absolute surprise".

The $444m donation is the largest Government donation to a private foundation in Australian history, and Federal Labor is demanding an explanation of why no tenders were called.
