The Flood studies, risk assessment and management strategies and intelligence systems (WP3) work package is part of the Flood Risk Management (FRM) program - a component of the jointly funded Australian and Queensland Government (50:50) 2021-22 Rainfall and Flooding - Exceptional circumstances Category C and D funding package approved under the Disaster Recovery Funding Arrangements (DRFA).

Note that funding may be re-allocated within the FRM program, to be determined by need once initial assessments are undertaken or through forecast budgetary requirements during delivery. QRA may seek to reallocate funding across DRFA Category C and D packages, in consultation with the National Recovery and Resilience Agency. The costs include extraordinary delivery costs to administer the program by QRA.
