Walcha Council general manager Anne Modderno said her team is committed to working with fire-affected residents to help them get the help they need and the funding they are entitled to.
"We are not going out and buying materials, but we are providing people with information," Ms Modderno said on Wednesday.
"The recovery is such an important process for the community to go through and following the recent BlazeAid community meeting in Yarrowitch it became apparent that there was some confusion around what funding people could access and what Walcha Council was providing.
"We want to be clear that this is a BlazeAid project and not a Walcha Council project, so anyone wanting help with rebuilding fences needs to call and register with Lorraine Hildred at BlazeAid - we are just helping people understand what they are entitled to.

"Our OH&S officer Noel O'Brien has been working closely with many fire affected residents, and it was wonderful to have him attend the meeting to bring questions back to council which needed clarification."
Ms Modderno said a fact sheet was being produced and it will be mailed to residents and placed on the Walcha Council website.
"Community members commissioned to get BlazeAid here, and Walcha Council has endorsed that application and been given a $40,000 grant by the Office of Emergency Management (OEM) to mobilise the camp and pay for operational components of the camp," she said.
"Walcha Council is committed to helping landowners know what they are entitled to.
"There are grants of $75,000 available for primary producers and $50,000 for small businesses who have been affected by bushfires.
"If properties are not working properties or small businesses, and people have lost their homes and are not insured, then my understanding is that the OEM has funding available to close that gap.
"Yesterday the NSW Office of Local Government announced six months of council rates relief for anyone who has lost their home or small business in the recent bushfires."
The Yarrowitch BlazeAid registration process identified 3,000 kilometres of fencing that needs replacing and a significant amount of clean up work.
Ms Modderno said council had applied to the Australian Defence Force (ADF) for help with workforce and heavy machinery to clear fallen trees and debris.
This is a significant amount of work which has been identified, and we have put in an application to get the ADF here, so the people doing the fencing work have a clear runWalcha Council general manager Anne Modderno
"This is a significant amount of work which has been identified, and we have put in an application to get the ADF here, so the people doing the fencing work have a clear run," Ms Modderno said
"About 1,000 kilometres of the damaged fences border with National Parks, so we are also engaging with National Parks and Wildlife to understand what they will provide."
