Local Recovery and Resilience Grants - $4.25 million

Local Recovery and Resilience Grants provide capped funding to assist councils severely impacted by natural disasters.

These grants help eligible councils deliver activities and projects that assist their community in recovering from a disaster event, and aim to increase local disaster resilience to reduce the impacts of future disasters.

Projects can include:

  • New activities that directly support local economic, social recovery and community resilience
  • Initiatives that support and promote community recovery and wellbeing, social support, or social development
  • Initiatives that support and promote sustainable local economic recovery, business continuity, business preparedness and business development
  • Reconstruction or enhancement (disaster resilience) to evacuation and relief centres that were directly impacted as a result of the event
  • Projects or initiatives that support disaster resilience
  • New or upgraded flood warning infrastructure

In response to the Northern and Central Queensland Monsoon and Flooding event (20 December 2022 - 30 April 2023), Local Recovery and Resilience Grants have been activated for the four most affected local governments in north-west Queensland.

Eligible councils

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