Community Recovery and Resilience Officers - $2.2 million


To address the immediate and long-term needs of communities impacted by the 2022-23 Northern and Central Queensland Monsoon and Flooding event, three community recovery and resilience officers (CRROs) will be embedded in eligible local government areas.  

These two-year CRRO placements will ensure a locally led response is sustainably delivered over the long-term through widespread community engagement activities that:

  • support the development of capacity and skills for individuals, businesses and service providers within affected areas
  • help shape recovery and resilience plans for affected areas
  • assist community groups with their Flexible Funding Grant applications
  • promote disaster recovery and resilience information
  • improve connections with other community recovery workers and local government.

Eligible councils

•    Burke Shire Council
•    Doomadgee Aboriginal Shire Council
•    Carpentaria Shire Council
