North Queensland Natural Disasters Mitigation Program

The Queensland Government has made $10 million available in the 2021-22 State Budget for eligible councils to help reduce the cost of insurance in North and Far North Queensland.

Funding through the North Queensland Natural Disasters Mitigation Program will be made available for physical mitigation projects that reduce disaster risk works, as well as studies or investigations to support a better understanding of a community’s risk. 

Local governments in Queensland coastal communities from Bundaberg to the Northern Territory border will be eligible to apply for grants through the $10 million program.

The program is expected to open for applications later this year, with projects to be delivered by December 2023.
