What we do
Our vision is to make Queensland the most disaster resilient state in Australia.
The Queensland Reconstruction Authority (QRA) is charged with managing and coordinating the Queensland Government’s program of infrastructure renewal and recovery within disaster‐affected communities, with a focus on working with our state and local government partners to deliver best practice administration of public reconstruction and resilience funds.
QRA is also the state’s lead agency responsible for disaster recovery, resilience and mitigation policy. In this role, QRA works collaboratively with other agencies and key stakeholders to reduce risk and bolster disaster preparedness.
QRA contributes to the Queensland Government’s objectives for the community – creating jobs in a strong economy, keeping communities safe and being a responsive government by:
- assisting local communities to recover sooner from disasters and maximise recovery and resilience outcomes for the state
- coordinating programs that support and build disaster relief and recovery readiness, capability and resilience at the local level
- providing responsive and integrated services to communities before, during and after natural disasters.
