Federal top up to the Emergency Water Infrastructure Rebate ends

The $13 million provided by the federal government for the top up to the Emergency Water Infrastructure Rebate (EWIR) has been fully allocated and EWIR applications are no longer eligible for the federal top up. Applications will continue to be eligible to receive the Queensland Government rebate of up to 50 per cent.
