PEER-to-peer caravan and RV hire company Camplify has come to the aid of Woodburn residents made homeless by NSW floodwaters.

The victims are being offered at-home caravans in a new program from the NSW Government which provided medium-term housing solutions.

Caravans will be located on residents' private property at no cost.

Camplify chief executive and founder Justin Hales said the partnership meant that residents would be able to remain in their community as the recovery continues.

"By repurposing our caravan supply in this pilot program we can give people a place to stay on their own properties while they manage the difficult task of repairing and rebuilding from the floods," he said.

Minister for Emergency Services and Resilience and Minister for Flood Recovery Steph Cooke said all stops were being pulled out to provide medium-term housing solutions for residents.

"The at-home caravan program will provide a safe and secure roof over the heads of locals so they can remain on their properties while they repair and rebuild," he said.

"The NSW Government is constantly looking for ways to better meet the needs of flood-affected communities as the flood recovery evolves."

Residents can register at Woodburn Recovery Hub for a caravan from July 20.

The program's progress will inform whether the NSW Government rolls out the at-home caravan program to other flood-affected communities.
