During the bushfire containment and recovery period, Red Cross teams provided relief efforts five states and territories. The team also provided support to 27,500 people at 100 relief and recovery centers across the country. Funds received were routed to the Red Cross Grant Program that assisted 3,500 people.
Nine months after launching their grants and recovery program, the Red Cross has distributed 2,864 emergency grants for homes that were destroyed, 1,982 primary residence repair grants, 518 injury grants and 36 bereavement payments.
The additional funds collected from UFC’s campaign will be equally distributed across all five grant categories to further help those in need.
