Member for Hammond, Adrian Pederick is taking action to assist landowners affected by the November hailstorm.
“I am of the understanding there are recovery assistance grants of up to $10,000 for eligible primary producers in the Riverland who were impacted by the hailstorm which occurred in November,” said Mr Pederick.
“The grant appears to be targeted at Riverland residents; however, I have been contacted by residents in my electorate who also experienced significant damage as a result of this hailstorm.
“I can assure those affected outside the Riverland that I have made representation with PIRSA seeking further advice on the matter.
“I have also contacted the Minister directly to inform him of this issue and I am awaiting his response.
“It would be unfortunate to see those affected by the same circumstances as the Riverland to be ineligible for this grant,” said Mr Pederick.
