Any state or territory is able to access the federal government's $1500 disaster payment scheme, Prime Minister Scott Morrison has said.
The payments are currently only on offer to Victorians who have been directed to self-isolate and will incur financial hardship while doing so.

"If other states or territories want to enter into a similar arrangement, I will be making an offer to the state and territory as if they wish to do that," Mr Morrison told Sunrise this morning.
The Prime Minister also promised federal government support for the Victorian childcare industry will allow parents to keep their place and employees to keep their jobs.
"The guarantee means parents will not lose any of their places and we will continue to pay the subsidies to those childcare facilities for those places," he said.
"Secondly, there will be a further sustainment payments made to childcare centres so they can stay operational and that means for the employees, that they will have the employees, that they will have the employment guarantee."
